Crochet Anyone?

Now, I know that I can probably find this online in 6.5 seconds, and I just might as soon as I am done posting this entry.  However, the hat that I just finished instructs me to "single crochet" around the edge in a contrasting color...now I have the contrasting color, and UPS is bringing me a big box of knitting supplies (and crochet hooks) this afternoon...but can anyone tell me (or direct me towards an priceless resource that can tell me) how I might go about this "single crochet"?  Clearly I am a crochet virgin!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks guys!

You'll insert the crochet hook as if to pick up a stitch from the edge, wrap the yarn around the hook, pull the yarn through the edge. Then wrap the yarn around the hook again and pull through the (two) loops on your hook. repeat in the next stitch along the edge. continue until you've worked all the way around your edge.
