Learn To Crochet

You Will Need:

crochet hook/needle and yarn (any size will work when practicing)

Hold the needle/hook like a pencil. Twist the yarn around the needle twice. Hold the twisted spot with your left hand while you pull the yarn through the loop with the crochet hook. Pull tight but make sure you have a loop on the needle still.(This makes a knot so your project will not come undone).Wrap yarn around needle and pull through loop (not tight this is your chain). You now have made one chain stitch and have a loop on the needle;this is the loop you will pull yarn through to make next stitch.Each time you pull the yarn through you have made another chain stitch. You continue this until you have as many chains as the pattern says. For a practice square chain 30.

To Single Crochet: Skip last chain made and insert the needle under one thread of yarn of the 2nd chain. Wrap yarn around needle once and pull through. You now have beginning loop and pulled up one loop on the needle. Wrap yarn over needle again and pull through both loops (one SC made). Insert needle in next thread and pull up a loop. Wrap yarn over and pull through both loops. You have now made 2 single crochet stitches. Continue across the chain the same way. After you make the last stitch, chain one and turn so that you now crochet on top of the first row you made.On this 2nd row and all the following rows insert tha needle under both threads. At the end of every row chain one and turn. Make about thirty rows to end up with a square. If you used cotton yarn for your practice square you now have a pot holder/hotpad. Acrylic yarn could melt if used as a pot holder or hotpad. Cotton yarn is also good for wash cloths/dish cloths and dish scrubbies.
