When working in rows of double crochet, the common method to start a new row is to chain 3, turn and continue to work double crochets to the end. However, this method can often create gaps or holes between the chain 3 and the first dc of the row. There are many methods to avoid this and this is one I often use and like. This method is actually the way you would start a row of linked double crochet. I’ve added a quick video to show you how to do it. I hope you enjoy this method. Click below to watch the video.

Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links. How to Crochet the Twisted Single Crochet – Right Handed How to Crochet the Twisted Single Crochet – Left Handed As Seen in This Video (click for more info) In words… To make the Twisted Single Crochet, you insert the hook in the next stitch, pull up a loop (keep both loops on hook loose), turn the hook counter clockwise (loops remain on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops.

It can be a little tricky pulling through those loops after the twist, so it’s definitely important to keep both those loops a little bigger than usual before the twist. The Twisted Single Crochet has the same look as the Reverse Single Crochet/Crab Stitch, but you can keep working in the usual direction – and some say they find it a lot easier!

Thanks for watching!

Linked Double Crochet Tutorial | Morale Fiber. Years ago, I was crocheting a mysterious pineapple stitch market bag (I can’t seem to locate the pattern now) when I ran up against a stitch I hadn’t yet heard of: the linked treble crochet. After a few wonky stitches representing my first learning attempts, I had a band of prettily textured, smooth treble crochet stitches without holes in between them. This seemed like a tiny miracle to me, since as we know the taller stitches in this lovely craft of ours are pretty hole-y.

Which is sometimes great. But sometimes not. That pretty linked stitch stuck in my mind long after I finished off the project, so I came back for more – and found that you could link any tall stitch, which I consider one of the handiest little bits of hook wizardry to know! Today I want to share the Linked Double Crochet tutorial, which I think is a good introduction to linked stitches and ALSO happens to be a featured stitch in my upcoming new pattern Neat, huh?

Ah picots, very possibly the most feared and hated stitch in crochet.

Personally I avoided the picot stitch for a very long time. When I would look at stitch dictionaries I would skip over any stitch patterns that contained picots. Or if I used those stitch patterns, I would eliminate the picots. In the past I had primarily seen picots used as a decorative element for edgings or borders. These tiny stitches can turn a plain shell stitch into a lavish embellishment, or make “points” have sharper definition. In many of the Japanese stitch dictionaries I own there are stitch patterns where the picot is used as part of the overall fabric not just on the edge. In my designs I’ve kept with using the picot as an edging embellishment. One of the biggest difficulties I had with picots is that I like to work with a larger hook than usual for the size yarn. My little heart “Crocheted Love” uses a modified picot to create the point at the bottom of the heart.

How do you work the picot? Like this: Foundation Double Crochet (FDC) A while back I did a video tutorial for Foundation Single Crochet (FSC), which shared my method for making that stitch.

How to Crochet Standing Stitches. Last week we started the next part of the pattern for our Little Boy Blue Blanket crochet along. In seeing that all the corner triangle parts would be worked from the right side by fastening off at the end of each row and rejoining again to begin the next row, I thought I would like the result better by using standing stitches. Standing stitches are an alternative to beginning chains and it is a handy trick to have in your repertoire. The are also the perfect trick for granny squares! And the thing that is so wonderful is they look just like a stitch because they are a stitch! Yay for no more telltale beginning chains.
