Stitch of the Week: Single Crochet

Welcome to the first installment of my new feature:  Stitch of the Week!  This week, I am focusing on a basic crochet stitch, single crochet.  This is the first stitch in Volume 4 of the Vogue Stitchionary.  

Sample Info
Hook:  H
Yarn:  Red Heart SuperSaver
Beginning Chain:  13
Gauge:  1 inch = 4.5 stitches, 5 rows

Single Crochet is a basic stitch, but it is very versatile.  It can be used in a variety of projects, from washcloths to amigurumi.

Here are some projects using single crochet:

Circle Scarf


Single Crochet Beanie

Single Crochet Mini Bag

Here is a video that leads you through the single crochet stitch and beginning a washcloth.
The Crochet Guru also has a left-handed video and a picture tutorial.

What have you made with single crochet?
