Reverse Single Crochet
Crab Stitch or Reverse Single Crochet, as the stitch is also known as, is a simple and elegant way of edging your crochet projects.
The name Reverse Single Crochet really explains the essential process of the stitch, because of the direction you work in.
Chain 1 – push you hook through the next “V” on your right – place the yarn over your hook – pull back through the “V” – place your yarn around the hook and pull through both loops.
I am a huge fan of the Crab Stitch as an edge and I often use it. It is for example the edge of my crocheted cotton pads.
Would you like to make your own? I have a free instruction on how to crochet your own cotton pads – please click the image or HERE for the free instruction. They are washable, reusable and look oh so pretty – you can even keep them in an old glass jar on your bathroom counter as an added decoration.
