One of my favorite stitches, the extended single crochet (exsc) allows for texture, more flexibility and a bit of a quicker crochet than the single crochet. This video walks you through the steps allowing you to learn while listening, watching and doing. Once you’ve got it, I would suggest that you try substituting the single crochet with this stitch and see how you like it!
The extended single crochet is abbreviated "EXSC" in your crochet patterns.

If you have a stitch you're struggling with, let me know and I'll see if I can't get a video up to help you get through your project.
