Most of crochet patterns are combinations of chains, single, half double and double crochet. Working these basic stitches in different orders creates most of the elaborate lace and garment patterns you see. Once you get the hang of these stitches you are well on your way to your first project. It is important to remember if the t-chain counts as the first stitch, which will be stated in most patterns, and to go through both loops of the stitch below unless specifically stated otherwise. Please feel free to ask me any crochet questions! I’ll be happy to help!
