Extended Single Crochet Stitch

Begin this stitch with a simple foundation chain. Add 1 or 2 chains depending on your specific pattern. I prefer to use 2. It’s much easier to start a new row this way.

Step 1: Insert hook into 2nd or 3rd chain from hook and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook).

*Experiment to see which chain you want to insert hook into – this may also depend on the type of yarn you use.

Step 2: Wrap yarn around hook (commonly referred to as yarn over), and pull through only 1 loop. Two loops remain on hook.

Step 3: Wrap yarn around hook and pull through both loops.

Repeat across foundation chain. Chain 1 for the beginning of the next row, and continue making exsc across.
