Single crochet in a chain space--help!
Hi everyone, I hope someone will be able to help me with this!

I'm currently crocheting a ripple afghan, and I can't quite figure out what this means: [sc in ch-1 sp, sc in next st]. I get that there are chain spaces, because in the previous row I do [ch 1, dc in next sc]. But the only online instructions I've found say how to double crochet in a chain space.

What I tried to do was just stick the hook into the space, take one thread, yarn over and pull through the two loops, but it wound up being very lumpy, and on my next row my stitches were definitely off.

Thanks a lot!

you work the sc in the normal way except that you put it hook into the large space created by the ch1 on the previous row. Do not crochet into the actual chain at all. Work your sc around it. I hope that helps.

Hmm I see... I do these things best on a sort of step by step basis, so is it this?

1. Put hook through chain space.
2. Grab thread.
3. Pull through work and single loop.

OR is it...


1. Put hook through chain space.
2. Grab thread.
3. Pull through work.
4. Yarn over, pull through two loops.
