Ch-2 sp means chain-2 space OR the space/hole created by a chain-2 from the previous row. All you need to do when you get to that part is to insert your crochet hook into the hole (vs. the top of a stitch) and work your dc.

Regarding this, what does ch 1 sp mean in crocheting?

Sp or sp(s) means that you will crochet into the space between stitches in the row above. Either one space or multiple spaces, depending on which abbreviation is shown. Ch-sp means that, when crocheting a chain, you will skip a stitch and work into the next.

Also, what does 2 sc in each st around mean? This is asking you to make 2 single crochets in the next stitch. By doing this you increase your number of stitches in the row/round by 1. This helps to create all the shapes that are used to make amigurumi. To make 2sc in the next st make your single crochet as normal is the next st.

Likewise, people ask, what does 3 dc in ch 4 sp mean?

"3 dc in next ch-3 sp" this means to make 3 double crochet stitches in the chain-3 space in the row below by looping your stitches around the 3 chains. Between the * and the next * you repeat these instructions up to the last "ch-3 sp".

What does SK mean in crochet?

The crochet abbreviation sk stands for "skip" or "skipping a stitch." Typically, in crochet, you work your next stitch into the next available space. However, if a crochet pattern asks you to "sk" then you aren't going to do that. Instead, you will work the instructions up to the point where the skip is commanded.

## How do you increase SC?

To increase one stitch in single, half double, double or treble crochet, simply work two stitches in one stitch. For example, if you are working in single crochet and you need to increase one stitch, you would work one single crochet in the next stitch; then you would work another single crochet in the same stitch.

The standard term for an increase of any kind is 'inc' but usually specific instructions are given to show how the increase should be made. Tutorial (2dc inc): 1. Make one double crochet (UK dc/USA sc) into the place where you'd like the increase. Then a second stitch is worked into the same place.

## Does first chain count crochet?

When counting your chain stitches at the start of a pattern—which you must do very carefully before continuing—note that the loop on the crochet hook is never counted as a stitch and the starting slip knot is never counted as a stitch. Now stop and look at the chain.
