Reverse Crochet Stitch or Crab Stitch Tutorial

This is a great tutorial from sediesells showing really clearly the reverse crochet stitch (us single, uk double).  I used this stitch to create a lovely edging around my baby blanket (featured in my last post).

Mind you, I'm having to watch it again as I need to use it on my lapghan that I'm hoping to finish soon.  It uses the same pattern as the baby blanket except it's larger and uses more colours.  I'll write out the pattern I used which was from a lovely book by Melody Griffiths....can't do it now though or I'll not get any hooky done :-)

I've added the link for this video and Sedie's website so you can check out more of her tutorials and blog.
