Looking for a new stitch to incorporate into your crocheting? Look no further than the shallow single crochet stitch. This stitch looks so much like it was knit, no one will tell the difference! In this lesson from Yarn Obsession, Sedie demonstrates how to complete this stitch, beginning with the base chain and allowing an extra stitch for the turning chain. Once your chain is completed, learn how to do the shallow single crochet, plus how to turn and create the next row of stitches.
Knitting is an excellent way to make your own clothing or craft elegant gifts for loved ones. It allows you to express yourself artistically through the stitches and designs you use in your piece.

Lynne shows you how to knit the cast on stitch and then demonstrates what to do when you get to the last stitch, to create a lovely cabled edge.
