The Back Loop Single Crochet

Stitch Description

The Back Loop Single Crochet is a variation on the traditional Single Crochet stitch. The main difference is that instead of inserting your hook underneath the entire stitch, the hook enters the center of the stitch, and exits underneath the back loop. This creates a nice ridged texture on the fabric with relatively little effort.
