As a crochet newbie, I would love to crochet more. But I'm stuck. Stuck on something very simple and silly. Can anyone tell me how to "read" a crochet swatch?

I've swatched. Single crochet, double crochet, half-double...but I have a hard time "seeing" the individual stitches. I have this problem with patterned knit swatches too, like seed stitch, but fortunately most knit swatches are stockinette.

Can anyone point me to a crochet tutorial or how-to book that highlights the individual crochet stitches in a swatch?

Thanks a bunch!

I don't know of anything that has drawings you might like, but I can tell you a simple way to "See" a single crochet stitch. It looks much like a Greek letter pi.
