Crochet tips - extended single crochet (esc)

Have you ever tried it? I am sure when you try you get addicted! :-) With extended single crochet you get very unique texture. It looks almost as knitted and is not-see-through. It works faster than normal single crochet and it is so easy to work it.

Ok, so let's start!
Work chain and start with 3rd ch from hook.

Step 1: insert the hook in specified stitch, yarn over and pull it through the stitch

Step 2: yarn over and pull it through the first loop only, now you have two loops on hook

Step 3: yarn over and pull it through both loops. 1 esc made.

Repeat steps 1-3 in each ch.

Wasn't it easy?!
For the moment I have only one pattern where I used this stitch - it is a pattern for A-line dress.
But I am sure it is not the last one! :-) This stitch is wonderful!

Wishing you a great weekend! :-)
