What stitch did you first learn

Hi I was just thinking of how and why i started crocheting/ knitting came 4 years later. Well I dont know the whole story but I was told I waited till i was discharged from hospital untill i crocheted. Crocheting helped with the Rymatoid Arthritis through my body and it helped with my hands.

It’s been over 20 years, so I honestly don’t know. Probably a single crochet. I, honestly, just got a hook and started putting it through a hole. I had no clue what I was doing, but I knew I wanted to do it! :joy::joy:

Can you believe it was slip stitch? I did an entire 9 foot long blanket in slip stitch thinking I was practicing my single crochet.

I did a dc ripple or chevron blanket first. Started it in a class in 8th or 9th grade.

I started one like that. My nana had told me how to do a sc. then mom showed my how to do a slip and then I started making a blanket doing a slip stitch thinking it was a sc. after like 50 rows my 13 year old self said I am done with this.

I have just made 6 or 7 years, i have to check lol, in the summer and i remember exactly how i started
I first started with chains, then the magic circle somehow and then the sc (i realized then that the mc technique was with scs lol) and kept on trying new patterns which had new stitches and now i can pretty much make anything :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
