After sharing the tutorials for the Standing Double Crochet and Standing Half Double Crochet, I was asked how to work a Standing Single Crochet! This technique differs a little bit from the other two, but in the end it's really quite simple. Here's how it's done!

Standing Single Crochet Photo Tutorial
This video and photo tutorial were made using Lion Brand Fettuccini yarn and a Furls Fiberarts 5.5mm hook (click here to purchase your own!), but of course you can make this stitch with any yarn and hook you choose.
The Standing Single Crochet stitch can be used whenever you're joining a new color (or skein) of yarn, when the pattern calls for you to join with a slip stitch, ch 1, and sc in the same st. To begin, tie a slip knot on the hook with the new color.
Then, with the new yarn still on the hook, insert the hook in the desired stitch.
Yarn over with the new yarn, and pull up a loop.
Finish the stitch as you normally would a single crochet - yarn over and pull through both loops.
And that's all there is to it! Unlike the other standing stitches, this one starts with a slip knot holding the yarn on the hook. But it's just that simple to make! I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial, and if this is the first you've heard or seen of standing stitches, be sure to check out the tutorials for the Standing Half Double Crochet and Standing Double Crochet stitches as well!
