how to do a reverse single crochet stitch.

The reverse single crochet stitch, also known as the crab stitch, is an easy stitch to master yet despite its simplicity it makes a beautiful corded edge.

Reverse single crochet - With right side facing and working from left to right insert the crochet hook into the next st, YO and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook), YO and pull through both loops on hook.

If you are using the reverse single crochet as a border around a cushion or an afghan remember that you may need to add 2 or 3 stitches in each corner for your project to lie flat.
