Photo Stitch Tutorial
The Extended Single Crochet stitch (esc) is a lovely take on the regular Single Crochet (sc). In my opinion it’s super underrated! It is less dense than regular sc and works up quickly.
Once you know the regular sc, it will be easy-peasy to learn the Extended Single Crochet stitch!
The materials i used for the swatch are:
The extended single crochet can be done with almost any yarn or hook, so feel free to use whatever you have!
I love using *Caron Cotton Cakes for the tutorials because the stitch definition can shine through!
Learn The Extended Single Crochet
The Extended Single Crochet is very close to a regular Single Crochet with a slight variation of the stitch to get the beautiful design!
You can start with any number of chains, and there is no pattern repeat.
Here are the steps written out and below you can find the step-by-step photos.
- Insert hook into next stitch.
- Yarn over, pull up a loop (2 loops on hook).
- Yarn over, pull through first loop on hook (2 loops on hook).
- Yarn over, pull through both loops.
