Step 1. Make a Knot
Start by making a knot into the yarn.
Step 2. Insert the Hook
Insert the crochet hook into the circle that you want to work.
Step 3. Position the Yarn into your Right Hand
To hold the yarn, wrap it around your pinky finger going through behind your pointer. Then, hold it in place with your middle finger and thumb.
Step 4. Prepare to Draw a Loop
After inserting the crochet hook, prepare to draw a loop. Wrap the yarn over the crochet hook and pull through.
Step 5. Make a Chain
Continue doing the same procedure like you did on the last step (step 4). Again, you will need to hook and pull through until you make a chain of fifteen.
Step 6. Draw up a Loop
Insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over and pull the loop right through the stitch. You will now have two loops on the crochet hook.
Step 7. Repeat the ‘Hook and Pull’ Procedure
Now, look for the little hole and put the hook through there. Wrap the yarn around the crochet hook and pull that straight through. Continue doing the same step to the last crochet stitch.
Step 8. Second Row
When you’re done with the 15 crochet stitches, make one single crochet at the end of the row. Flip your work and start doing the same procedure from the last step (Step 7) starting from right to left.
Step 9. Continue the Same Procedure
Keep doing the same process until you get the length or size of whatever you wanted to make. Repeat the steps as many times as you need until you create something out of your single crochet stitches.
Keep practicing until you perfect them. It may be a little frustrating at your first try, but just keep on practicing until you make it perfect.
