Crocheting Tips

A variety of methods are usually available on how to crochet. The method used will usually be established by the item that you are going to crochet.

That said, apart from the materials, you will just need a little patience, persistence, and practice. The pattern that you have purchased, which I hope at this stage is an easy one, will provide you with all the instructions and details that you will need to complete your project.

So to get you going on your way to learning how to crochet here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Crochet Tools – make sure you have everything you need ready to start your first creation. The yarn that you will need and the colors you want? Is the pattern an easy one? A pair of scissors? A row counter; this will help you enormously.

Keep the hook in your right hand and allow your forefingers to bend the hook of the loop. Then simply pull through the knot in the center of the hook.

Next, simply slide the loop of the hooked thread though making a slipknot on the crochet hook. Then repeat the process to create the chain of stitches you will need to create your item. The thickness of the chains should be made for the type of item you’re working on.

The ensuing move is to bring back the thread on the top of the loop making the thread to go around the hook so that it will be double stitched.
Here you may skip the first double stitched chain and carry onto the knot that isn;t hooked on the knot of the loop. Ensure that the chains don’t loosen or weaken. The strands should now be aligned with the other threads. It is important and better to have a tighter knot on the chains to make the item sturdier and more robust.

Locate the hook axis to the next hole of the second double stitch chain. After getting through the hole, slide the thread passing through the center of the third double stitch chain that will go on the upper part of the loop. You have now created two loops on the double stitch chain. This will make the loops much stronger and tighter.

Then returning from the 3rd loop, you can make another chain stitch to make a reversed counter clockwise loop. This will retain the knot that supports the double stitch chains. You can then begin from the first step and create new chains in a new row creating similar loops as in the previous rows.
