The Reverse Single Crochet Seam creates a wonderful smooth surface on one side, and a distinctive corded seam on the other. It’s a great way to finish off your projects.
How to make the Reverse Single Crochet Seam
Step 1: Hold the motifs together with right sides together, and insert your crochet hook where you want your seam to start, into the outside edge of the fabric closest to you, and outside edge of the fabric farther from you.
Step 2: Taking the yarn, yo and pull a loop through both sts on hook.
Step 3: Come in through the next stitch (through the outside edge of both motifs).
Step 4: Yo and draw yarn through both sts on hook, and turn hook clockwise to twist the two sts on the hook
Step 5: Yo and draw through the sts on the hook.
Repeat steps 3-5 for the length of the seam.
To finish off the end of the row, after pulling loop through the 2 sts on needle, pull one loop through the loop on the hook, cut the yarn, leaving a 6″ tail, and pull the yarn all the way through.
