How to Crochet a Baby Cap Part 3/13
So now what we’re going to be doing is half-double crochet all the way around, there is another tutorial on how to do half-double crochet. And what we need to do is that we need to champ two so one and two. And see the straggler here, I call my loose strings stragglers, what I’m going to do is I’m just going to hold it like so and what we’re going to do is we’re going to trap this bad boy in there. So the one chain is considered as the same as doing a half-double crochet. Sp what we’re going to do is we’re just going to go right into the center point of this ring that we have here. And double crochet is just like so. Pull through all three. I should explain that better. Wrap your material around, go into the center of the hole. Pull your materials through, so now you got three on there and then pull through all three.
What we need to pay attention is that we need to have twelve half-double crochets and that includes the front chain because that’s considered a half-double crochet as well. So we’re going to do twelve of these bad boys. Okay so just keep grabbing and what we’re doing is we’re holding down that straggler and see how that straggler is working into the center? You’re never even going to see the starting point of this actual string because you’re trapping it in there and it will never come out.
So I’m not even counting anymore. I’m just going along. And twelve seems to be a very standard number when it comes to going around rings. So you see when I get close to coming back over here you put it well, got close to twelve. So I’m going to start counting once I get back over to there. Okay let’s count, so one—so pull it out if you have two. I don’t know if you can see that, one, two, three, four, five, six and seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, and one more, you see. So we’re going to do our final and this is called the slip stitch. And what we’re going to do, if you get right in there, just stick it in the top. What we want to do is we want to stick it right in the top section and pull through the material of that hole and through that hole, and that is the slip stitch to make our circle.
And you can see that loose string. You can see it there and you know what? You can pull it out of little bit like that and if I have my scissors which I do, we can cut it now if you want to and that is your next step completed.
