Reverse Single Crochet ~ A Crochet Stitch Tutorial

Reverse Single Crochet Tutorial
The Reverse Single Crochet (also known as the crab stitch) has been one of my favorite edging stitches since I used it in the Peacock Lace Beanie back in 2012. Personally, I love this stitch as a finished edge. Not only does it add a unique crochet twist, but it’s slightly more thick than common stitches, making it stand out compared to most others. With the result of these stitches, you normally will not work into them. The abbreviation for this stitch is ‘reverse sc’ or ‘rsc’ in written patterns, and can be seen in most stitch charts as one of the symbols below.
