Long Single Crochets (often abbreviated “long sc”) are a great way to add variety to your crocheted pieces. When a contrasting color is worked over a solid color, it creates a spike effect on both sides of the work.
In this photo, each row has been worked in a different color, but all the long sc are done in the same light blue throughout the piece. For an example of long sc in a solid color piece, watch the tutorial video below.

This stitch repeat can be worked with any size yarn. Use the hook size recommend for whatever yarn you choose. Worsted weight yarn is a good size to practice with – you probably have enough scraps lying around to go ahead and start!
