How to do single crochet through back bar (Camel Stitch)
Isn’t it amazing how many different variations of stitches you can get with just one single crochet stitch?
Single crochet through back bar stitch is amazing! You may find different names for this type of stitch, some people call it Camel Stitch, some say single crochet through third loop stitch. It looks a lot like knitted but ... well works with the hook! It’s pretty simple you just have to find that back loop and work with single crochet.
I love using this stitch for my yarn leftovers projects. The possibilities are truly endless! From the smallest coasters to big laundry baskets (oh just Baskets!)
I found that you can get the most out of this stitch by working in rounds in spiral way, so I’ll be showing how to work scbbo (single crochet back bar only) in circle without joining the rounds. You need to have your stitch markers ready, because the the spot where you finish one round and start another one is invisible.
Let’s get crocheting!
Make magic ring and ch1.
Sc 6 in magic ring, without joining the round find the back bar of the single crochet of the first stitch, insert the hook through that bar and work single crochet. Make another single crochet to the same back bar, repeat 2 scbbo in one back bar of each stitch all the way around.
I used single crochet through back bar stitch in this set of the basket and coasters pattern.
