Your question: How do you do a crochet turn?

What is a turning stitch in crochet?

Turning chains are used to begin a row of crochet to ‘lift’ the work up to the next level. Different stitches require a different number of crochet chains. For single crochet, you basically just make one additional chain stitch and that will ‘raise’ you one level. Double crochet uses a turning chain of three stitches.

How do you do a corner in single crochet?

Start at one of the corners, and single crochet to the end of your work. Add three single crochet stitches in the same hole on the corner of your work. These stitches allow you to turn the corner and leave it square. Continue to the next side with single crochet stitches all the way down.

Does it matter which way you turn your work in crochet?

It may not seem like it matters, but turning in crochet ought to be done consistently each time. That is, you should be turning the same way every time you turn to the next side. The turn creates a neat edge, which is important if you are joining two pieces or seaming garments.
