Special crochet stitches

Single crochet in the 3rd loop: This stitch will push the loops backwards to give a braided look on the other side of your work when turned over, You can swap this for a single crochet in the back loop if you prefer.

When working in the 3rd loop, our work is on the right side and the loop is the 3rd one away from us. The images shown below are from the wrong side for clearer demonstration, though we will be working image 2 from the other side.
