Reverse Single Crochet aka Crab Stitch

The reverse single crochet is a relatively new stitch Mikey learned in 2014. Grabbing onto the fundamentals of doing this stitch in reverse is a bit of a trick to how you rotate your hook.

It is meant for borders and final trim work. You can see it on the heart as it has bumping rope appearance. It’s a great stitch to be honest with you.

So reverse means just that. You need to go back in the direction from which you came. So instead of advancing forward like regular single crochet, you go back to the previous single and do a single crochet. It naturally creates the bumps that you can see.

Give it a try, tutorial is provided below.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Hi to all .
    I learned this stich about a week ago and just realised I wasn’t doing it right !
    Instead of having 2 loops on my hook, got only 1 … I think I’m doing a reverse slip stich ^^, but the finished look is not bad at all !
    Thanks for all the great videos Michael, really nice to watch and your voice is very nice .
