Grabbing your string and I’m right handed with my crochet so I’m going to wrap it over my fingers so wrap it twice, take the back over the forward, take the back now and push up and you have to perfect slipknot. And we’re just going to stick our hook in and just grab it.
So, the secret to the actual crochet this time, this is a five-inch one so the answer is 10, 10, 10 and 10. So, for experts that want to count stitches, they can just do 40 but I’m going to show for the beginner’s a really cool way that I accidentally found out on my own.
So, this is considered one, two, three, four. This is called chaining so five, six, seven, eight, nine and 10. And stop and pull this out a little bit and take your hook out. Grabbing your other piece of string, I want you just to tie it into position, knotted knot just one tie and loose, loosey goosey because it’s not going to stay, it’s just a reference guide for you. So now, put your needle back, hook back in and now pull it and that will represent the first corner.
So let’s go again, so we’re going to do 10 again so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and 10 pulling it over again, grabbing the next, you can get crochet markers too if you want to. You just have to put it on there, crochet markers are a lot easier but not everybody has a luxury of having those. I mean not expensive, they’re just convenient. So, sticking your needle back in, pulling the material back, okay so that was another.
So, let’s do another 10 so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and 10 and pulling it out again, tying it another piece not too tight, just enough to give you an idea where your corners will be because they are on the tens, okay.
And now, let’s do our final attempt so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and 10 and hold. So, as we are doing the bigger squares as we’re going, there are lines that obviously are going to get longer because the gap is also bigger. So, this will get you started and continue to your next video.
