Do you crochet into front or back of stitch?
When working a traditional crochet stitch you insert the crochet hook from the front of the chain, through the center of the “V” and under the corresponding bar on the back of the same stitch. You can see that it is below the front and back loops.
Does crochet look the same on both sides?
When you work in rows, you’ll turn your work after every row. This means that you will see both the right and wrong sides of the stitches on alternate rows. The look is the same if you choose to work joined rounds while turning your work.
What does it mean to crochet over a stitch?
Typically, when you crochet, you crochet into the loops at the top of the stitch from the row or round below the one in which you are working. You may crochet into both loops or into just the front loop or just the backloop; regardless, you are inserting your hook into a loop and working your stitch into that.
What does back loops only mean?
Blo stands for “back loop only.” This is a direction for where you should work the indicated stitch. Single crochet back loop only (or sc blo) indicates that you should insert your hook under the back loop only, not under both loops, when working your next single crochet.
What does crochet in front loop only mean?
The Front Loop Single Crochet is a variation of the basic single crochet stitch. It creates a twined ridge along the surface of the fabric if repeated for several rows. This stitch can be used as an independent element of a pattern, or as a pattern in and of itself, as seen in our sample.
