Also known as the Flat Single Crochet (FSC), the Waistcoat Stitch (WC) is a variation of the single crochet mimicking the look of knitted fabrics. Creating rows of this stitch creates a beautiful and dense fabric ideally used for projects that requires a sturdy structure.
FOUNDATION CHAIN: ANY NUMBER OF CHAINS + 2
Begin with a slip knot and chain 17.
Single crochet (SC) in the 3rd chain (CH) from the hook and in every succeeding CH. Turn your work.
CH 2, WC in the next stitch and in every stitch in the row. Turn your work.
Insert your hook into the body of the SC in the row below.
The body is located underneath the two horizontal loops of the stitch. Yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops, completing your flat single crochet.
Repeat Step 2 until you have the necessary amount needed for your project.
