Special Stitches

FSC – Foundation single crochet – Ch2, insert your hook into 2nd Ch, draw up a loop, with 2 loops on your hook, yarn over, pull hook through first loop only so that you have two loops on your hook, just like if you were working a single crochet stitch. Then, yarn over again and pull hook through both loops. That finishes up the single crochet part of the foundation stitch crochet is complete! Repeat the whole steps over till you have the number of stitches you want

BLO – back loop only – insert your hook underneath the back loops only (picture to aid clarity included in the pattern)

Crab Stitch – (reverse single crochet) – working towards the stitches on the right of your hook, insert hook into the next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on the hook.

Finished Measurement – 15” by 17”
