Single Crochet Join Tutorial
Today’s tutorial will show you how to join two pieces of crochet together using the simple single crochet stitch. This join is about the most sturdy you can make, so it’s great for projects that will get lots of wear and tear. To see a video tutorial on this method, click here.
To begin this join you will put the two pieces you want to join together with the right sides facing each other.
With a slip knot already on your hook, insert it through the first stitch of both pieces to begin your join.
Next, just like a single crochet, yarn over and pull up the loop through both pieces.
Now, yarn over and finish off your first single crochet.
Important Step: Before beginning your next stitch, tighten down the previous stitch. This gives a nice tight join.
Continue down your entire seam single crocheting into every stitch you come to.
Once you reach the end, fasten off and weave in the ends. I’ve used a contrasting color for this tutorial so you can see exactly what shows through to the right side of your work.
Be warned that this join will create a raised seam. If you need a flat seam you can try the mattress seam or whipstitch seam which will give you a nice flat seam.
