How To Yarn Under Single Crochet

Photo Stitch Tutorial

The Yarn Under Single Crochet (yusc) is special technique often used in amigurumi for the tightness of the stitch it creates. It is not a stitch you would want to use all the time in replacement of your regular yarn over single crochet, but for specific purposes it a gorgeous change!

    As for this YUSC in rows I see no change at all. In the Round? A slight difference but I’m not sure. What am I to look for?

      Hello, visually in the round it makes cute little x’s. In rows there isn’t a big difference but is a tighter version of a sc, so it for some projects this method may be optimal!
      It’s all about the fun in learning how slight variations can have a different outcome!!
