1 ! 1 A Beginner s Guide to Crocheting! Woo! Other great crafting resources: Brought to you by: Craft and Tea Society Most diagrams and instructions from ravelry.com - online crafting community; GREAT resource for finding patterns, looking at pretty yarn, and asking questions! youtube - there are videos out there for pretty much every stitch knitpicks.com - order pretty yarn and nice needles online from here michael s and ac moore for cheap yarn and supplies and of course your weekly CATS meetings! What you need to get started: approx size I/9 crochet hook simple worsted weight yarn (nothing too fancy, thick, or thin!) patience!

2 ! 2 1. Make a slip knot 2. Hold the hook and yarn correctly Everyone has their own personal way of holding the hook and controlling the yarn in crochet. Right handers hold the hook in their right hand, usually as though it were a pencil, (Fig.79), or in a firmer overhand grip (Fig.80). The left hand holds the work and at the same time controls the yarn supply. The left hand middle finger is used to manipulate the yarn, while the index finger holds onto the work (Fig.81). To maintain the slight tension in the yarn necessary for easy, even working, it can help to arrange the yarn around the fingers of the left hand as shown in Fig 82. Left handers: Prop the diagrams up next to a mirror, so you can see the illustrations in mirror image, while still being able to read the text from the original page. 3. Chain stitch (ch) - this is the most basic stitch; most projects begin with a series of chain stitches to create the base chain 1. Wrap the yarn over the hook in an anticlockwise direction (or hold the yarn still and manoeuvre the hook). 2. Draw the yarn through to form a new loop without tightening up the previous one. Repeat. To count them afterwards, first make sure that they are not twisted and that you are looking at the front (see Figs 85 and 86), then count back, but ignore the loop still on the hook.

3 ! 3 4. Single crochet (sc) 1. Insert the hook into 2nd chain from hook, wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the yarn through the chain only. 2. Wrap the yarn again and draw the yarn through both loops on hook sc made. Repeat. 5. Half double crochet (hdc) 1. Wrap the yarn over the hook and insert the hook into 3rd chain from the hook. 2. Wrap the yarn over the hook, draw through the chain only and wrap the yarn again. 3. Draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 hdc made. Repeat.

4 ! 4 6. Double crochet (dc) 1. Wrap the yarn over hook and insert hook into 4th chain from hook. 2. Wrap the yarn over the hook, draw through the chain only and wrap the yarn again. 3. Draw through the first 2 loops only, wrap the yarn again. 4. Draw through the last 2 loops on the hook - 1 dc made. 7. Treble (tr) 1. Wrap the yarn over the hook twice and insert hook into 5th chain from hook. 2. Wrap the yarn over the hook, draw through the chain only and wrap the yarn again. 3. Draw through the first 2 loops only, wrap the yarn again. 4. Draw through the next 2 loops only, wrap the yarn again. 5. Draw through the last 2 loops on hook - 1 tr made.

5 ! 5 8. Working in rows THE FIRST ROW: Work across the base chain. (Right handers work from right to left; left handers work from left to right). Insert hook under either one (Fig.109) or two (Fig.110) of the three threads, which make up each individual chain. Choose which you find suits you best and then be consistent. At the very beginning of the first row, in order to give the first stitch room to stand up to its proper height, one or more of the base chains is missed. These then bend and stand up alongside the stitches. Together they look like and may often count as the first stitch in the row. The number of chains missed depends upon the height of the stitch they are to match as follows: single crochet = 1 or 2 chains missed; half double = 2 chains missed; double = 3 chains missed; treble = 4 chains missed. For this reason, make more chains for the base chain than there are stitches in the base row.!!! STARTING A NEW ROW: At the end of each row turn the work so that another row can be worked across the top of the previous one again from right to left (left handers from left to right) (Fig.112). It does not matter which way you turn, but it helps to be consistent. Before the new row can begin a turning chain (one or more single chains) must be worked to bring the hook up to the height the row will be. The number of chains for turning depends upon the height of the stitch they are to match as follows: single crochet = 1 chain; half double = 2 chains; double = 3 chains; treble = 4 chains. The turning chain may also count as the first stitch in the new row. In this case miss the first stitch in the previous row (Fig.113) but remember to work a stitch into the top of the previous turning chain when you reach the end of the row (Figs 114 and 115). FINISHING OFF: To fasten off the working yarn permanently, make one chain, cut the yarn about 5 cms away, draw through the loop and tighten - this will prevent unraveling. With a yarn needle, weave the tail through the stitches of the fabric to hide it.
