The first loop on the hook

Simply Crochet - - YOUR GUIDE -

1 Hold the tail of the ball of yarn in your left hand and drape the yarn clock­wise over the top of it to form a loose, cir­cu­lar loop.

2 Hold the loop be­tween left thumb and fore­fin­ger, then in­sert the cro­chet hook through the cen­tre of the loop from front to back.

3 Catch the ball end of the yarn with the hook and pull it back through the cen­tre of the loop, tak­ing the yarn through with it.

4 Pull both ends of the yarn to tighten the knot, then pull just the ball end to tighten the loop so it’s close to the hook, but not touch­ing it.
