How to Reverse Single Crochet {Crochet Skills Tutorial}

Reverse Single Crochet is a simple, yet attractive edging. It is commonly used as an edging for hats. I like to use it to edge various projects that need a little something, but not too much to take away form the rest of the project. I will be sharing both a hat and a poncho pattern in the coming weeks that will sport the reverse single crochet. I thought I would take this opportunity to share a tutorial on how to do it, before those posts go live.

The Reverse Single Crochet (rev sc) is exactly what it sounds like. It is a single crochet stitch that will be worked in the reverse direction, from left to right. It's really easy! Let's get started.
