How to Crochet the 1st Row in Slitted Tree Skirts
So now that we got our 32 plus three chains what’s going to happen is that, it will look completely flattering in this point. So now what we have to do with the very first row that we are going to cross, we now have to define where the corners are turning. And once we do this. Your blanket is done love it less on how much you can go like how big you can make it.
So, what we’re going to do is that pretend this is still lied out in a line and basically when we look at crochets that is we always pretty well going to the right. Sorry going to the left if you’re right handed or left with your, or going to the right if you’re left handed vice versa whatever you, you don’t have time to think.
So you will have chained up so you’ve got into your 32 so this will be the 32 here and we’re going to chain up three so one, two, three. I should actually do it different color just for your -. So let’s chain up three so one, two and three, okay so that is considered your first post and now what we want to do is we’re doing it configuration where every hole that we are going into we’re going to actually put three double crochets in two.
And if you want to do triple crochet you can do that, we just have to look at the video on how to make the corners in order to make it successful. So that’s your first post and what you're going to do is you’re going to crochet into that same hole and then double crochet again. So you can have three, you’ll have two double crochets in there but the chain actually equals three. So understand that, that chain that we just created is the third post.
What we’re going to do now is that we are going to chain one, okay and now we’re going to stretch over. So we’re going to jump over two and go into the fourth now if we’ve both to put a crochet marker in there we will have actually be and if they’re going to know. So what we’re going to do is that we’re going double crochet into the fourth one there, okay. So just count over so you’ve skipped over two and you’re going to double crochet three times.
So, what’s— now we actually want to turn that corner, in order to that here we double crocheting so we want to add two chains and then going into that exact same hole we’re going to do another three double crochets right in the row into that same hole. So we just have to make sure that we chain two in between and if I came into what you’re doing is you’re creating a V shape in your crochet. So basically when you look down the end level of a blanket you’ll see this V shape actually how doing.
So we’re going to done crochet, chain one and now you’re going to skip over too. So skip over two and then going into the next one and what we’re going to do is still, this is the catch is still what we’re going to do is where we go to double crochet, we’re going to wrap it completely around the chain. We’re not to go over right into this stitch itself and this is kind of lazy way of doing it but it works.
So, you’re going to do this three times. So going in, so one, going all the way around and over again, okay. And I’m going to show you how to do that on video, okay and then what we’re going to do is chain one okay. And then, what we’re going to do again is that we’re going to come underneath the line again so come around for three more, okay. So we’re going all the way we’re wrapping it all the way around there, okay. And then we chain one and now what we’re going to do, because we wrap in there we’re not counting this stitches anymore like when we’re having count.
But what you want to do is you want to make sure that you got into the aid. So one, two, three, four, fiver, six, seven, eight, so make sure it’s eight loops eight stitches pass that hole, okay. So in the very end what you’re going to do is you’re going to put in free. And now we’re turning on the corner down so out, you two can’t go into the same corner piece again for free. And now we’re going to chain one again and again, we’re not going to go into the next stitch.
We’re going to go all the way underneath the line, come back around for three triple crochets again, okay. And then what we’re going to do is then chain one, okay and then we’re going to go into the line again. And again I now show you how to do that, okay and then chain one and now we’re going to go right into the once so if you put a near here. So its’ one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight it’s on the eight one we’re going to put three triple crochets into this stitch itself just like when you’re here, okay. We are turning the corner so we have to add two chains and then going into the same hole again for three triple crochets and then chain.
And now this is the same concept over here, we’re just mimicking it. Again, we’re going to go underneath the line, okay for three so on two and three, chain one and then going underneath the line again for three, okay. And then chain one and then you’re going to want to count from this hole so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight going right into the eight stitch, okay. And then of course it’s turning a corner and then going in it again for three more into the same hole.
So now, just how you see over here, you’re going to want to do the same configuration, So just chain one and go right into the last section so one, two and three. And so then basically that whole line is done and this line has defined everything that you need to do. Now, it’s just a matter of growing the circle bigger and bigger and I’m going to show you on tutorial format on how to do that. So that’s how to do the skirting of the Christmas tree.
