I am finally done with the single crochets on the Hygge CAL that I am working on for the Farm Fair. Yipee! Job well done, me! 🙂 Now comes the “fun” part. Okay, once I get started it won’t be as bad as my pathetic brain keeps making it.
This is just a short (I hope) post about my progress so far. As I went along, I placed a bright colored thread in the 1st, 10th, 20th, etc. rows so I would have a guide for the cross stitches. I then tied these threads together to keep track of each part of the CAL.
As I continue on to part 2 of the Hygge CAL, I’m still not sure if it will be done in time for the Farm Fair. The single crochets that make up a majority of the wrap are super easy and I could get through them in a week or two, even with numerous distractions. I lack the confidence to do the cross stitch on a black surface. It has been many years since I did any cross stitch work so I am hoping it will be much like riding a bicycle.
Now that you have tackled the single crochet into the chain stitch row, you are ready to move onto the second row. You are over the beginner crocheter’s hump. The rest should be much easier. Sure, you’ll have stitches that will make your eyes glaze over and your hair turn gray. But doing the single crochet into the chain row is the hardest to learn because it’s awkward and fiddly. So pat yourself on the back and get ready for the next adventure into the world of crochet.
Hello, everyone and welcome to this week’s lesson on making a single crochet into the back hump of a chain stitch. Hopefully, you have been practicing your chain stitches as well as working on identifying the parts of each stitch. This week we will be making our first of many single crochets. If you want to review Part One, please click here.
Since you are going to be putting the first single crochets into your most recent chain stitches, they should be much easier to work with than the first chain stitches that your did when you first started.
Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a good day. Mine is going well at the moment. Today we are going to learn the basics of the single crochet into the chain you have been practicing the last few weeks. Once again this post will be a “lecture” and not a “lab”, but it’s still very important. No falling asleep in the back of the class!
The first single crochet into the chain is going to be frustrating, but it’s very important that you persevere. Once you are over this hurdle, the rest should be much easier.
