How many types of stitches are there in crochet?
In addition to crochet chains and slip stitch, there are four crochet stitches that are considered the basic – most common – crochet stitches. These are single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet.
What is the biggest crochet stitch?
The treble crochet is a tall stitch that works up quickly and a little taller than the double crochet. Remember, you will never work in the first chain from the crochet hook, unless the pattern you are working specifically directs you to do so. We will now begin working Row 1 of treble crochet.
Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
