I am a knitter, but am teaching myself basic crochet to do a project. I understand the chain, and now even a single crochet, but I need to add two rows of single crochet to a pair of slippers I am going to felt. I am stymied how to do this. I tried, making the slip knot, then putting it through the first knit stitch, I then chained, did the single crochet and did a round, but it made the opening really tiny so I know I am screwing up somewhere. Please help me to do this. I just ask you imagine I am dumb as a rock and tell me how as if I didn't know anything! Oh and PS, I crochet left handed! Thanks!
