Single Crochet Loop Stitch

Single Crochet Loop Stitch

The single crochet loop stitch is an easy and versatile stitch. It can be used for many fun crochet projects. It's the stitch that I used for my Raggedy Ann wig. I've also seen it used for Amigurumi projects and for the hair on animal hats. It's up to you how short or long the loops are. You can even snip the end of the loop in half to create straighter hair for dress up or Halloween wigs.

Important Note: the loops will be made on the "wrong" side. If you are working in the round, you can continue working the single crochet loop stitch for each round. If you are working a flat piece, you will need to simply single crochet (without the loop) every other row so that your loops all end up on the same side.

If you are following this tutorial to make my Raggedy Ann Wig pattern, you will want to use a J 6mm crochet hook and worsted weight yarn. 

Step 1

Insert your hook into the stitch just like you would if you were going to make a single crochet.

Step 2

Move your hook to the right, OVER the working yarn.

Step 3

Bring your hook around UNDER the working yarn.

Step 4

Bring your hook to the right, moving it behind the working yarn while also grabbing the working yarn (this will create a loop on your finger).

Step 5

Pull (draw) your hook with the working yarn back through the stitch. You will have two loops on your hook. You will also have created a big "loop" over your finger.

Step 6

"Yarn over" (wrap your working yarn over your hook).

Step 7

Pull (draw) your working yarn through both loops on your hook.

Step 8

Move your finger out of the loop. You have made your first single crochet loop stitch!

Repeats steps 1-8 to continue making the single crochet loop stitch.

Important Note: the loops will be made on the "wrong" side. If you are working in the round, you can continue working the single crochet loop stitch for each round. If you are working a flat piece, you will need to simply single crochet (without the loop) every other row so that your loops all end up on the same side.
