Basic Crochet Tutorial #1 - In this video I will show you the way I make a slip knot and how to do the chain stitch. The chain stitch will be used as your foundation row in many of your projects. In most written patterns, the chain stitch will be abbreviated as "ch". In a written pattern, "ch 10" would mean you would want to make a chain with 10 stitches. In this tutorial, I have made a chain of 4 or "ch 4".

To make your project wider than the one in the tutorial you will need to increase your beginning chain to one more than the amount of single crochet stitches across. For example, in both the beginning and ending swatches in the video, I made them 20 sc across. My beginning chain for each was 21 chain stitches.
Basic Crochet Tutorial #3 - This tutorial is to show you how to do the half double crochet stitch. In crochet patterns written in US terms, the half double crochet stitch is abbreviated as "hdc".
To customize your pattern size in half double crochet you will need a beginning chain one more than the stitch amount across that you want to make, same as with single crochet. You can make your project as long as you want by repeating the steps in row 2, ch 1 and work 1 hdc in each stitch across.
