Learn the 3 Basics of Crochet - Slip Knot - Chain - Single Crochet - Learn Crochet -The Roving Nomad

If you’re new to crochet, or just have some questions about the basics, then this is for you. There are three things everyone needs to know in order to crochet:

  • Tying a slip knot

  • Chaining

  • Single Crochet Stitch

Once you get these basics down you’ll be on your way to making finished items.


Slip Knot

Our first stop is the slip knot. There’s a lot of ways to create one and in the video below I’m showing you my favorite.

Chain

Our second basic technique is chaining. Learn how to create a basic chain, which is the foundation of any crochet piece.

Single Crochet

Our final third crochet basic is a single crochet. Every single stitch you could ever create has roots in this stitch. It’s a important one to master, so make a swatch or two before you start your first project.
