Crochet Patterns that Use the Single Crochet Stitch

If you’re looking to learn a simple crochet stitch, the single crochet stitch (sc) is a great place to start. The sc stitch is easy to learn and fun to work with.

The sc stitch is worked by inserting your hook into the stitch (or chain), pulling the yarn through, yarning over, and pulling the yarn through the loop. The single crochet stitch is a shorter stitch that can be used to make everything from sweaters to blankets to amigurumi and more.

If you’re ready to get started with this fun and easy stitch, here are crochet patterns that use the single crochet stitch.
