REVERSE SINGLE CROCHET (a/k/a CRAB STITCH)
A reverse single crochet is worked from left to right; whereas a regular single crochet stitch is worked from right to left. Insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over and draw through both of the loops on your hook. This stitch takes a bit of practice but the outcome is well worth the effort.

When crocheting items that need to match (i.e. baby booties, socks, etc.) ... crochet the matching pieces simultaneously. Crocheting a row one one piece, then a row on the other piece will help ensure they match perfectly!

On row : Ch1, turn Sc in same st. Are you suppose to Sc in the Ch1 ?
I appreciate your help.
<< reply >>
For Row 3, you chain 1, turn the work and work a single crochet into the same stitch, meaning the very first stitch on the working row which is a double crochet.
You can watch a video tutorial of this scarf here:
What does it mean when a pattern asks “working behind ch-2 sps”? It’s not a front or back post. It’s in the attached pattern, Row 3.
<< reply >>
You’re correct... this is not a post stitch.
It just means for you to access the indicated stitch by going behind the chain 2 space.
You aren’t working in or around the chain 2 space at all.

Re: V stitch
I was watching a youtube tutorial on the V stitch. I guess it was done by Bethinx1. My question is how do you keep the chain you are crocheting into to make the V stitch from stretching out so your V stitch looks right. Thanks for your help.
<< Reply >>
Each new V-stitch is worked in the chain space which is
beneath the chain... not into the actual chain stitch.
The stitches shouldn’t stretch out.

Re: crochet help
I found your site while searching how to make a crochet graph. I want to make beanies with words crochet into the pattern, but am having difficulties in found out how to make the graph. I want to crochet in the round either with double crochet or single. Can you help me out I would be grateful for the help. I crochet left handed, but am a right handed person.
<< reply >>
I design my graphs on regular graph paper and incorporate them into my work. Each square on perfect square grid graph paper would represent one single crochet stitch. This type of graph should work fine with any single crochet hat pattern.
Have you ever heard of surface crochet or writing on crochet?
I have a video on this page:
that shows you how to write on single crochet fabric with slip stitches.

Re: Need help on a pattern instruction
There is a light at the end of every tunnel, just pray it's not a train.I am not sure if you are the person I am suppose to email if I need help on a pattern explanation. I found this pattern and I am not sure if I am doing the first step in every row right. Row 1: Shell in 5th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as dc, ch 1 here and throughout),
<< Reply >>
For Row 1 you work a Shell in the 5th chain from the hook.
The instructions for the Shell should be listed in the pattern.
The reference to “beginning ch counts as dc, ch1 here and throughout” means
that for Row 1 and all other rows in the pattern... the 4 chains you skip at the beginning will be counted as one double crochet and one chain on that row.
words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.

is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

I was baby-sitting my two grandchildren around suppertime and both hands were submerged in hamburger when Rufus, the family dog, barked at the door.
I asked six-year-old Nathan to let him out, and he did.
A few minutes later Rufus barked to come back in, and again I asked Nathan. He told me that the house rule is that someone else has to do it.
I told him his sister was too far to hear me and politely reminded him that Rufus is his dog.
As he stomped past to let him in, he muttered, "He's your granddog, you know!"
My grandson, age 10, and his sister, age 13, were always teasing each other.
One day, he was getting "sensitive" about things his sister was saying to him.
I reminded him that he had said the same types of things many times in days past.
With quiet reflection, he spoke a gospel truth.
"But it doesn't hurt as much coming out of my mouth as it does going into my ears."
The story is told about a pastor who was into telling stories
to the children. He'd bring all the children up, and they'd sit
on the floor, and he'd tell them a story. One day he said,
"Boys and girls, I want to tell you a story about someone
who likes to live in the woods, but sometimes we can
see him in our yards. Anybody have any idea who I am
No takers. He said, "I want to tell you about a creature
that lives in the woods and sometimes in our yards, has a
big bushy tail, likes to eat nuts. Anybody have any idea
what I'm talking about?"
No takers. He said, "I'm talking about a creature that
lives in the woods, sometimes in our yards, big bushy tail,
eats nuts, likes to climb trees, jumps from tree to tree--now,
does anybody know what I'm talking about?"
One kid raised his hand to take him out of his misery.
The pastor said, "Do you know what I'm thinking about?"
The kid said, "Yeah. I know the answer should be Jesus,
but it sounds like a squirrel to me."
I noticed a yellow triangular sign posted on a telephone pole near my house that said: "I lost 40 pounds in two months," followed by a phone number to call for more information.
Directly beneath the advertisement someone had written on a piece of cardboard:
"Thanks, I found them. Don't lose any more!"
My friend's wife returned from a tour of duty in the Middle
East. To celebrate, he decided to take her out for a night
on the town. Proud of her service record, he suggested she
wear her uniform.
Not only did a patriotic taxi driver refuse to accept money
from them, but an appreciative citizen paid for her meal at
the restaurant, and the theater manager upgraded their
balcony seats to the orchestra.
At the end of the evening, my friend turned to his wife. "I
still get credit for taking you out, right?"
Heather and Marcy hadn't seen each other in awhile,
so they decided to meet for lunch.
The talk naturally got around to their respective love
lives. Marcy confided that there really wasn't anyone
special in her life. Heather, on the other hand, was
beaming about the new man she had found.
"He's perfect. He's handsome, and last night when we
went out to dinner, he said the four little words I've
been waiting to hear a man say to me!"
"He said 'will you marry me'?" Marcy asked.
Heather replied, "No, he said 'put your money away'."
A New York retail clerk was suffering from
"It's all those years of standing," his doctor
declared. "You need a vacation. Go to Miami,
soak your feet in the ocean and you'll feel
When the man got to Florida, he went into a
hardware store, bought two large buckets and
headed for the beach.
"How much for two buckets of that seawater?"
he asked the lifeguard.
"A dollar a bucket," the fellow replied with
a straight face.
The clerk paid him, filled his buckets, went
to his hotel room and soaked his feet. They
felt so much better he decided to repeat the
treatment that afternoon. Again he handed the
lifeguard two dollars. The young man took the
money and said, "Help yourself."
The clerk started for the water, then stopped
in amazement. The tide was out. "Wow," he said,
turning to the lifeguard. "Some business you
I had been thinking about coloring my hair. One day
while going through a magazine, I came across an ad
for a hair-coloring product featuring a beautiful
young model with hair a shade that I liked.
Wanting a second opinion, I asked my husband, "How
do you think this color would look on a face with
a few wrinkles?" He looked at the picture, crumpled
it up, straightened it out and studied it again.
"Just great, Honey."
An economist returns to visit his old school. He's
interested in the current exam questions and asks his old
professor to show him. To his surprise, they are exactly
the same ones he had answered 10 years before!
When he asks about this, the professor answers, "The
questions are always the same; only the answers change!"
Two men have been sitting out on a lake all day
long ice fishing. One has been having no luck at
all, while the other has been pulling fish after
fish out of his hole in the ice. The man having
no luck finally leans over and asks the other
what his secret is.
"Mmmmm mmm mm mmm mmmm mmm mmm," is the reply.
"I'm sorry, what did you say?"
"Mmmmm mmm mm mmm mmmm mmm mmm," the successful
"I'm sorry, I still didn't understand you."
The man spits something into his hand and says
very clearly, "You've got to keep your worms
A small boy stunned his parents after church one
Sunday when he began to empty his pockets of nickels,
dimes, and quarters.
Finally his mother asked the obvious question: "Where
did you get all that money?"
"At Sunday school," the boy replied nonchalantly. "They
have bowls of it."
Which windshield wiper blade always quits first? That's
right -- the driver's side. This happened to me one day
while driving home in the middle of a blinding storm.
Unable to see, I pulled over and tried to figure out a
quick fix. I found it in a yellow cotton work glove
lying on the floor. I wedged the cloth hand under the
wiper arm. It did a great job keeping my windshield
Not only that -- you'd be surprised at how many people
