This versatile stitch opens up a whole new world of design possibilities, allowing you to mimic the look of traditional knitting with your trusty crochet hook.

Materials You'll Need:

  1. Worsted weight yarn (or any yarn of your choice)

  2. Crochet hook suitable for your yarn weight (refer to the yarn label for recommendations)

  3. Basic crochet knowledge

Let's Get Started:

Step 1: Begin by creating a foundation chain with an even number of stitches, connect both ends of the chain by making a slip stitch

SPLIT SINGLE CROCHET STITCH: This stitch is worked as a single crochet but where the hook is inserted is the only difference.The hook will be inserted between the 'V' of the stitch. Join to the center of split stitch when working in the round with a join.
