Special technic: waistcoat stitch in rounds

The waistcoat stitch is basically the same as a standard single crochet stitch:
Step 1: Insert your hook into the next stitch of the previous round
To crochet waistcoat stitch you insert the hook into the lower V of the sc stitch of the previous round.
Step 2: Yarn over and pull through a loop
Step 3: Yarn over and pull through the two loops on your hook
This produces rows and rows of Vs, creating that stocking stitch knitted appearance.

To start of, pull the new yarn through the V of one of the stitches in the previous round. Make a loose chain and then work the waistcoat stitches in each stitch all around.

To finish the round, make a waistcoat stitch into the stitch before your joining chain. Gently pull the tail end of the joining chain out so that your work starts with the first proper waistcoat stitch. Make a final waistcoat stitch of the round into the stitch that is now empty. Close with a slip stitch made into the V of the first stitch of the round then fasten off.

If you are working in the round and making several rounds in the same colour, you can work in a spiral. When you reach your starting chain, gently pull it out and replace it with a waistcoat stitch. Then work your next waistcoat stitch straight into the first waistcoat stitch of the previous round. Place a stitch marker so that you know where the round begins and continue for the required number of rounds.
