How to crochet a 2sc
Technique used to increase your stitch count by one.
Often used when you are increasing for a hat, bag or shawl.
This increase can create a bit of a hole when worked at an average gauge. See our picture in Step 2.
Step 1: In next space insert crochet hook into stitch. Yarn over, pull through. Then yarn over again, pulling through both loops on your hook. You have now completed your first sc.
Here is where your increase happens and your sc will become two single crochet stitches.
Step 2: In that same stitch (hole), you will insert your hook again, yarn over, pull that yarn over through, then yarn over again and pull that yarn over through the 2 loops on the hook. You have now completed your second sc in the same space as your previous single crochet, increasing your stitch count by one.
About the Instructor: Andi Gallegos
Andi Gallegos- aka Mysistersknitter on Ravelry- learned to first crochet more than 20 years ago from a coworker, while looking for a way to occupy herself during downtime at a call center job. A couple of years later after many attempts to teach herself to knit from books, she found a video that taught kids to knit and it suddenly clicked. Nowadays it is rare for a day to go by without at least one stitch being knit.
At that time living and knitting in sunny Arizona didn’t warrant a large knitting community, so Andi started a blog called My Sister’s Knitter as a way to connect with other knitters.
Andi believes that if everyone knit or crocheted the world would be a kindler, gentler place.
About the Instructor: Jody Richards
Jody loves pouring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches. And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
She’s a serial starter-of-projects and has a serious problem with finishing things without a deadline.
And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
