CROCHET STITCHES and INSTRUCTIONS
Explanation of the signs *.-- In crochet, as in kniting, it is often necessary to repeat a whole series of stitches. Such repetitions will be indicated by one, two, three or more asterisks, *, **, ***, &c., as required.
STITCHES
In Point of fact, there is only one stitch, because all crochet work consists of loops made by means of the little hook, and connected together by being drawn one though the other.


Position of the hands


Single Stitch or Small Close Stitch
Put the hook, from the rigght side of the work, through the upper half either of a chain stitch or a stitch of the row below, take hols of the thread and draw it through both the loop of the row below and that which is on the hook, and which proceeds from the last stitch.
This stitch is also known as "slip" stitch.


Plain or Close Stitch
Put the hook, as shown above from the right side to the wrong, through the top loop of a preceding row, take hold of the thread, draw it through the first loop. twist the thread over the hook and draw it through the two loops.
In many crochet manuels this stitch will be found under the name of "double" crochet.
As will be seen by the following illustrations and descriptions, all kinds of variations in crochet can be produced by different methods of arranging these simple stitches.
