Crocheting is not that hard. After all, you only have one needle in your hand and not two. It takes a while to get the hang of it, but then it really is not rocket science! A few basic terms and techniques I have filmed and texted for you. I would also like to provide you with the basics on this page.
In this case, it’s double crochet:
- A series of chains and a single crochet row have already been prepared, as well as two double crochet in this row.
- To make a double crochet we place the thread from back to front on the needle and then we insert the hook together with the thread into the next stitch. There, we place it on the hook again and pull it back to the front. We now have 3 loops on our hook.
- We place the thread on the hook from the back and pull it through two of the three loops. Place the thread back on the hook and pull it through the last two stitches. This was the first double crochet.
- For the next one, we start by placing the thread again and afterwards we insert the hook into the next stitch. There, we pull the thread back to the front so that we now have a total of three loops on our hook.
- We place the thread on the hook again and pull it through two of the loops. Place the thread one more time and, this time, pull it through the second two loops.
Tip: Try not to pull everything too tightly since otherwise you’ll have difficulties, or won’t even be able, to go through the loops with your hook. But it shouldn’t be too loose either, or else the loops would move around on the hook.
