#10 crochet thread (white or ecru work best but you can use any color)
Size #7 crochet hook
Alphabet pattern (there are loads of alphabet patterns free on the internet)
Ch(s) – Chain(s)
dc - Double Crochet (US term, outside the US it is called tc, triple crochet)
Rows 4 etc: read the pattern for the next row from the bottom up, filling any square with an X with 2 dc, and any empty squares with ch2. Each square consists of 3 stitches. The first dc stitch for that square and then 2 more stitches, to either fill or leave open the square. The first dc of the next square also serves as the last dc of the previous square. Because of the size of each letter, not every letter takes the same number of rows to create, (compare I and W).
When you have completed the first letter, the next two rows will be repeats of row #2.
Once one end is done, tie off and weave in the thread end.
