    Lesson for Right Handers R1

    How to Make a Starting Chain

    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch.jpg[/left:faafd2421c]

    This illustrates how to make the first circle in making a loop. (You can wrap it around your finger to make this circle.) Note that you should leave a length of about 6 inches on the other side of the circle (this will be left hanging as you crochet and will be woven in when you are finished crocheting the piece.) Weaving in this length is a good way to secure the end so that it will not unravel over time.

    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch2.jpg[/left:faafd2421c]
    Fold one side of the yarn down so that it is lined up in the center of the circle (refer to photo). This is in preparation to pull this yarn through the center of the circle.




    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch3.jpg[/left:faafd2421c]
    Using your fingers or a crochet hook, pull the yarn through the center of the circle (first loop made).






    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch4.jpg[/left:faafd2421c]
    If you haven't already, insert crochet hook into the loop just made.




    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch5.jpg[/left:faafd2421c]
    Draw the loop up tighter by pulling with your fingers on the strands of yarn on both sides of the loop. Don't pull it too tight.





    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch6.jpg[/left:faafd2421c] Step 6: Yarn over the hook.




    [left:faafd2421c]http://crochet.about.com/library/graphics/begch7.jpg[/left:faafd2421c]
    Step 7: Pull this yarn through the loop on the hook (chain made). Hint Hold the last chain made between two fingers to keep it from drawing up smaller while you are pulling the next chain through. If you make your chains too tight, you'll find that you'll have difficulty in working the next row into these chains. If you keep your chains loose enough, crocheting the next row will be more of a pleasure! That's a good thing.


    Repeat steps 6 and 7 for each chain that you need to make until you have made the number of chains needed in the starting chain for the pattern you are making.

    Crochet Lessons for Left-Handers L1


    Holding the Hook

    There are two common ways to hold a crochet hook.
    [left:af5c6ad320]http://www.crochet.org/lessons/lessonl/diagraml/ld018g.gif[/left:af5c6ad320]
    The first is to hold the hook between your thumb and index finger like a pencil.











    [left:af5c6ad320]http://www.crochet.org/lessons/lessonl/diagraml/ld019s.gif[/left:af5c6ad320]


    The second is to hold the hook in an overhand manner, like a knife.


    There is no right or wrong way to hold a crochet hook. Try both methods and see which is most comfortable for you. Many crochet hooks have a "thumb rest" to help your grip.
