Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

Extended Single Crochet (esc) Tutorial

Someone recently asked how to do extended stitches, so I thought I’d do a few tutorials and focus on them. The extended stitches extend the height of the current stitch you’re working, hence the “extended” title. 

For example, the extended sc is taller than a regular sc, and the extended double crochet is talled than a regular double crochet.


Extended Single Crochet

Extended single crochet (esc): Insert hook into st or space desired, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull through 1 loop on hook, yo, pull through remaining 2 loops on hook.

Step 1: Insert hook into st or sp desired, yo, pull up loop.


Step 2: yo, pull through ONE loop on hook.


Step 3:
yo, pull through remaining 2 loops on hook.


This stitch can be used for anything. Whether you need a bit of extra height, or you want your project to have a softer less stiff fabric than a regular sc, try this. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Happy Crocheting!
