Crochet: Simple Stitch, and How to Start It

Introduction: Crochet: Simple Stitch, and How to Start It

Get a 10.5/6.50mm crochet hook, or any similar crochet hook you happen to have, and some yarn, medium.  I don't suggest really fuzzy yarn, it will lead to many knots and frustration, especially with beginners.

Step 1:


We'll assign each finger a number for our purposes.  Hold the end of the yarn between 1 and 3, left hand, with the yarn looped around 2 as shown

Step 2:

Next, stick the crochet hook between 1 and 2 as shown, under the yarn, over your hand.

Step 3:

Twist the crochet hook in the yarn twice, as shown in the video and picture.  There should be a loop around the hook, and the two strands of yarn twisted together on the side.

Step 4:

Loop the yarn around the hook a second time, as shown.  This should actually be hooked...well, on the hook.

Step 5:

Now , yarn under hook, pull through the first loop, and you've begun your chain of yarn.

Step 6:


Repeat steps three, four and five over and over again, and you'll end up with a chain of yarn.
Practice makes perfect, so focus on keeping the loops all the same size.

    Before starting I put the numbers on my knuckles and thumb so I wouldn't get messed up :)
