The 3rd Loop in my Single Crochet Patterns
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:
Not Knit Warm and Quick Winter Cowl (coming soon!)
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
The easy on mittens came out well but I don’t know how to make the AJ
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
very pretty cowl! Excited about making it but i have to go and find an S hook. Never seen one, so wish me luck!
