SIM­PLE STEPS

HOW TO WORK DOU­BLE CRO­CHET IN A SPI­RAL

Simply Crochet - - CHRISTMAS DOLL -

1 Make a foun­da­tion ring (see p89) and work the t-ch (1ch for dc). Now work 12 dc stitches into the ring, but do not join the last stitch and first stitch of this first round with a slip stitch.

2 In­stead, work the first dc stitch of the sec­ond round into the first stitch of the first round. To do this, in­sert the hook into the stitch, yrh, pull yarn through, yrh and pull the yarn through both loops.

3 You’ll now be work­ing in a spi­ral. Con­tinue to work more rounds of dc stitches in a spi­ral, ac­cord­ing to your pat­tern in­struc­tions.

4 On the last round, af­ter you’ve worked the last dc stitch, you’ll need to fin­ish off the spi­ral with a slip stitch for a neat edge: in­sert the hook into the next stitch, yrh and pull through both loops.
