Crochet Tip: Better SC Ribbing

By on February 11, 2015


When working a single crochet ribbing for a garment, such as the edge of a hat or pair of mittens, try working the first and last stitch of each row through both loops.

You will still get the ribbed texture, but the edge of the piece will look cleaner, and it will maintain its shape better. Also, when crocheting along the ends of the rows, you will notice fewer holes or gaps where the cuff meets the body of your project.  (Note:  When using this technique, the chain-1 at the beginning of the row would NOT count as a stitch.)
