i'm sorry i know this was long and rambling i hope you understand what im asking thanks

A. Hi,
It sounds like you almost have this stitch! Yes, after you do your chain stitch row, turn around and count 3 chains from your hook, and begin your single crochet, this is how you do it.
1. Insert your hook through the chain stitch.
2. Yarn over, and bring your hook back through the stitch you're working on. (you'll have 2 stitches on your hook)
3. Yarn over, and pull this yarn-over-stitch all the way through both of the stitches on the hook. There you go! You've just completed your single crochet!

Let me know how it goes! Esther
