hey What is the easiest thing to crochet? everyone and welcome to our channel
silly Daisy today I’m going to teach you
how to crochet for absolute beginners I
thought I would teach you some of the
basic stitches and skills you’ll need to
know let’s get started today we will be
learning how to make a slipknot hold
your crochet hook crochet a chain
crochet a single crochet and how to
weave in the ends of your work so today
you’re going to need yarn you can use
any basic iron you have around your
house or if you go into the store you
can get any of their basic plain yarn
I’d recommend getting 100% acrylic and
then for a crochet hook I would
recommend getting aluminum crochet hooks
I just got this set of 4 with a bunch of
different sizes and you can use them for
many different projects and use them for
all different types of yarn so today I’m
going to be using a 5.5 millimeter
crochet hook so to start you’re going to
make a slipknot to do this
you hold your on like so with your index
finger pointing downwards then you twist
it upwards and put your thumb through
that same loop and you grab the tail
with your index finger and your thumb
and pull through creating a loop then
you put your crochet hook in and pull
the yarn to tighten it so next is how
you hold a grocery hook and your yarn so
you hold a crochet hook with your thumb
and fingers usually on this indent and
you hold it like you’re cutting with a
knife and then with your left hand you
hold the yarn so you can all that many
different ways but this is just how I do
it so I hold it with the yarn through my
fingers like I’m pointing at something
then I wrap the yarn around my pointer
finger and grab my work with my middle
finger and thumb so I could just put
them together like so so next is
learning how to chain so you’re going to
hold the crochet hook and you’re going
to twist the hook away from you
and you’re going to put it on the left
side of this string then you’re going to
turn it to face towards you and then a
little bit more towards your left hand
then you’re going to pull downwards
and pull through the loop on your hook
just like that and so that is one chain
so again we have our hook facing away
from us we put it on the left side when
you face it towards and then towards
your thumb and pull through and just
continues like that so away from you on
the left side turn to face towards you
and then towards your left hand so that
it will easily go through that loop so
when you face it away from yourself and
turn it towards you that’s called
yarning over and then so you yarn over
and pull through paste it away from you
on the left side yarn over and pull
through yarn over and pull through so
we’re gonna make a chain of 11 so right
now we have one two three four five six
seven eight nine ten and eleven
so each chain is that V and it has a top
loop and a bottom loop so these are the
top and these are the bottom so now
we’re going to learn how to do a single
crochet so we’re going to insert our
hook into the second chain which is this
second V from our hook so we insert then
we yarn over by going behind the string
come out of the stitch yarn over by
facing away turning it towards us and
then towards our left hand and pulling
through both loops so we used we skipped
the first chain as a turning stitch and
we’re going to continue so we insert
into the next chain by going into the
top v and we yarn over about going
behind the string come out and we have
two loops on our hook then we yarn over
it’s facing away from us and on the left
side turn towards us and pull through
both loops you’re just going to continue
inserting yarn over come out yarn over
and pull through both loops
that’s one single crochet all the way
across
and then once we’ve gotten to the end we
should have 10 stitches a 10 single
crochet and 10 V so we have one two
three four five six seven eight nine and
ten so then we’re going to do another
row and to do that we chain so you face
it away from us
yarn over and pull through then we flip
it around so we turn our work and then
we’re going to work into each of the
fees so you’re going to insert
underneath both so it looks like you
have three loops on it but so this is
just the stitch of our single crochet so
we comment behind it
yarning over come out yarn over and pull
through both loops so now you can do as
many rows as you’d like I’m going to do
a total of twelve rows of single crochet
to make a square swatch so if you’re
continuing you’re going to do one single
crochet in each stitch or V for a total
of ten single crochet in each row when
you get to the end of the row you’re
going to do one chain flip over your
work and continue going across so now
I’m done with my little swatch what I
forgot to mention before was that if you
ever messed up on any one of your
stitches and you want to redo them you
just take out your crochet hook and pull
the string however far back you want to
go and redo those stitches insert your
crochet hook and do them again
so now that we’re done with our swatch
we’re going to chain one so we yarn over
and pull through then you’re just going
to pull your crochet hook get your
scissors and cut it and pull tight then
if you want you can weave in the ends
with a sewing needle with a wide opening
you just put on and weave it
and you can cut the extra with your
scissors and do it to the other side so
there’s our little swatch where we
chained 11 and then we inserted our hook
into the second chain because the other
one was our turning stitch that we did
single crochet all the way across now
that you’ve learned the basics of
crochet the chain and the single crochet
there are millions different projects
you can do it with just those few
stitches so while you’re still looking
how to crochet it’s important to not
give up so keep practicing and to take
it slow at first might be difficult but
you just need to take your time when we
have to do the stitches and keep
practicing so your hands to East the
movement it’ll become easier and you’ll
get better and better so thank you so
