    I don't have pictures but you make a loop near the end of the beginning of your yarn by looping the yarn around a finger twice, then pull the part of the yarn band closest to your hand over the other band away from your hand release and do the same thing again pulling the yarn off your finger causing there to be what I call a slip loop that you can tighten or undo. put your crochet needle thru this loop holding the yarn going to the ball away from the loop between your index and middle fingers. holding the crochet needle in the other hand with it threaded thru the loop push the needle towards the string between the fingers. grab the string with the hook and pull the yarn back thru the loop. repeat this until you get a chain. for the next row is very similar. keep the hook in it's loop, ...see more »I don't have pictures but you make a loop near the end of the beginning of your yarn by looping the yarn around a finger twice, then pull the part of the yarn band closest to your hand over the other band away from your hand release and do the same thing again pulling the yarn off your finger causing there to be what I call a slip loop that you can tighten or undo. put your crochet needle thru this loop holding the yarn going to the ball away from the loop between your index and middle fingers. holding the crochet needle in the other hand with it threaded thru the loop push the needle towards the string between the fingers. grab the string with the hook and pull the yarn back thru the loop. repeat this until you get a chain. for the next row is very similar. keep the hook in it's loop, push the needle thru the second to last loop in the chain and then catch the yarn being held between fingers and pull back thru both loops leaving you with the needle thru 1 loop. continue looping back thru the chain this way until the end and you will have a double chain, then begin your 3rd chain same as second working off of the new 2nd chain continue adding on chains to make simple scarves baby blankets and the like. Once you have this mastered search how to on youtube to learn more advanced patterns or if I wasn't clear to learn from the beginner on up in styles. I hope I explained so you could understand. My aunt taught me how to chrochet and it is something I have always loved but my hands are slowly getting worse. making it dificulty to do.

    or you could cut the notches out of the top of the pvc tube you use, making it look like the top of an old castle, with a hax-saw, jig-saw or with a drill bit drilling out the parts you don't want then come back and sand those areas smooth

    This is great!!! Awesome no matter how we decide to make them they appear really simple to make.
