Standing Single Crochet (US) / Staande Kortbeen

This stitch is the perfect way to start a new single crochet row if you are starting with a new colour. This is so much neater than a slip-stitch and a chain one.

Hierdie steek is die ideale manier om ‘n nuwe kortbeenry in ‘n nuwe kleur te begin. Dis soveel beter as ‘n glipsteek en kettingsteek.

Hold your yarn tail in your hand with the handle of your hook.
Hou jou jaarn in jou hand saam met die handvatsel van die hekelpen.
Yarn over several times in the normal fashion – from back to front.
Slaan die draad ‘n paar keer oor jou pen, van agter na voor.
Insert your hook into the stitch where you want the standing single crochet.
Steek jou pen in die steek waar jy die staande kortbeen wil maak.
Draw up ‘n loop – this is what it should look like now.
Trek ‘n lus op – dit behoort nou te lyk soos in die foto.
Your standing single crochet is complete. Doesn’t this look so much better than a slip-stitch and a chain?
En daar is jou staande kortbeen! Soveel netjieser as ‘n glipsteek en ‘n kettingsteek.
