Mr. Boxy
Crochet uses a hook to thread yarn into loops. The yarn is held down with your little finger, while you move it around the needle using your index finger and middle finger.

Most of the crocheting you'll do will use chain and crochet loops.


To begin, make a slipknot. Wrap the yarn around your finger, then pull the thread through the loop to create a knot.

Now you're ready to crochet.

To make a chain loop, push the hook through the slipknot. Wrap the yarn around the loop and pull it through the slipknot. Move the needle from the slipknot to this new loop and repeat.

The other loops are made by running the yarn through multiple loops. To make a circle loop, pass the hook through both the first and last loops in a chain and pull through the yarn. A double crochet starts with the first loop and ties in with every third loop.

Crochet patterns are written using a series of abbreviations. These will be followed by a number for how many loops you need to make.

ch: Chain stitch
ch-: Move to a loop in your chain stitch. Count from the first loop you made.
dc: Double crochet
sk: Skip

Yarn size is measured in grams. You will need to use the right weight for the pattern, which will be listed in the pattern with the abbreviation "g."
