If you haven’t tried out this easy stitch, you can watch our tutorial on how to crochet the Centre Single Crochet (CSC) on YouTube (AKA waistcoat stitch). This tutorial demonstrates how to crochet the crochet stitch in rows. This is an easy beginner-friendly pattern.

If you’re looking for farmhouse style decorating ideas, our rustic farmhouse pillow adds the perfect touch—style in your bedroom, family room or sunroom/mudroom.

Adding a few pillows to an entrance bench adds a cozy feel and makes a nice backrest when putting on your shoes. Make several up in neutral colours or add pops of colour to your decor.

I love adding throw pillows throughout the house. But I especially love crocheted pillow covers. Homemade pieces add extra warmth and love to the home. You’ll find my designs throughout my house. Shown in the picture above, my Super Bulky Herringbone Throw, my Textured Floor Pouf and my Succulent Pumpkin Cozy.

Special Stitches:

Reverse SC – Reverse single crochet stitch is the same as a regular single crochet — except in reverse. Instead of working from right to left, you work from left to right.

CSC – Centre Single Crochet (Waistcoat Stitch) Formed the same way as a standard single crochet. Instead of working the usual way locate the inverted V-shape on the post of the stitch 1 row below. Insert your hook in the centre of that V.  Create loose stitches with a large hook to make it easier to insert hook into the V. Watch YouTube tutorial here
