"Have you been wanting to learn how to crochet the crab stitch, but think it looks a bit too complicated? It really isn’t difficult - you can learn it! If you can single crochet, you can do it in reverse. The crab stitch is also known as a reverse single crochet because you are literally working in the opposite direction you would normally work. That’s it – the basic stitch is still a single crochet, just worked in the reverse direction."
