Yay! I learned how to do a reverse single crochet stitch. Also known as a crab stitch. I had tried before by reading directions but this has a video. It is so much better to learn by watching. Now I can add pretty borders on my work. Thank you so much.

Awesome video, Connie Haney! I'm crocheting a jar cover using fine, mercerized cotton, don't know the # and a size 2.00mm hook. I'm left-handed, so am working to my left, all around the top of the jar. It looks very pretty. Thank you!

Great, clear, video. I'm now using this technique on baby washcloths and around a baby "cocoon". Works and looks great, not too "frilly".

I really like the crab stitch. I have several things I am going to make I can use i

The video is clear on how to execute the stitch, but I have always known it as the reverse single crochet. So I was surprised to find that it was one I have known a long time. Thanks anyway.

The crab stitch is too cool!

I am a beginner and would like to say I have learned a lot from the Viedos and also learned what the Abbrivations are in a pattern. Thank you hahahahahaha who says a man cant learn how to crochet..

Oh a man can learn to crochet, just can't have babies...LOL

Love video instructions. I have used your crab stitch in the past but at that time it was called a "reverse single".

That is what I called it. Who changes the name?
