The 3rd Loop in my Single Crochet Patterns

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Some of my patterns will refer to the third loop – when you are using single crochet.

Working into this loop gives your crochet project a bit of a ‘knit look’.

Here are some photos to help you find this loop!

It can be a bit difficult at first to get used to working into this loop but once you start it becomes much easier 🙂

A trick I use to work into this loop is to hook it with the edge of the crochet hook (rather than trying to slide the point of the hook under) and then I slide the hook under the loop to complete my stitch.

Patterns that use this stitch include:

Darla’s Easy On Mittens

Drew’s Easy On Mittens

Not Knit Warm and Quick Winter Cowl (coming soon!)

  1. Hi Jan’t, I’m not sure what you mean by the AJ? If you can give me a little more information on that shortform I’d appreciate it. Thank you! Rhondda

  2. The easy on mittens came out well but I don’t know how to make the AJ

  3. Thank you Sharon 🙂 I actually picked mine up at Michaels and I believe it was less than $5.00 if I am not mistaken – It is a Boye Jumbo Plastic Crochet Hook US S/19mm. They had a wood 25 mm one too and I couldn’t believe the size of it! Have a lovely week! Rhondda

  4. very pretty cowl! Excited about making it but i have to go and find an S hook. Never seen one, so wish me luck!
