CHAPTER  ONE – Basic Crochet Stitch Refresher

You may already know how to crochet, but I thought it would be a good idea to include a basic crochet stitch refresher. If you don’t know how to crochet, then this chapter will teach you the basic stitches and techniques you need to start to crochet. Ripple and chevron patterns use the chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, sometimes the treble crochet, and crochet two stitches together. In this chapter we will go over all of these stitches as well as how to change colors and carry color changes up the side of the crochet fabric.

What You Need to Get Started

All you really need is a hook and a skein or ball of yarn. Choose a medium weight acrylic, wool, or wool blend to begin with. These types of yarn are easy to work with and easy to care for. You will also need a crochet hook.
