Crocheting has arisen a long time ago, back in antiquity, and surprisingly, for a long time it was considered an exclusively male occupation. The creation of fabrics or laces using a special crochet hook has always been relevant and popular. This is a fairly simple type of needlework that allows you to create products of different textures, voluminous and delicate. There are many different hooks available, they vary in material and size. If you want to learn the basic crochet tricks, then here are some tips for you.
Pay attention to the position of your hands when knitting. Hands should move freely. Slide the thread over your left index finger towards you, and then press it down with your thumb. The thread should go between your palm and the rest of the fingers of your left hand. Adjust the thread tension with your thumb and forefinger.
First, dial the first loop. To create it, turn your beard crochet to the left. In a push-pull motion, insert the thread under it upward from the index finger of your left hand. Then turn the hook with the thread thrown over it counterclockwise, press your thumb against the index thread in the place where it twisted. Next, re-insert the hook under the thread on the left side.
Pry the thread with the beard of the hook, pull it into the loop and tighten the knot. Your first buttonhole is ready.
Now we need to type the so-called air loops, which will become the basis of the product. Insert the hook into the first loop, grab the thread and pull. Thus, cast on as many stitches as you need.
Then grab the thread and pull it through the loop of the chain. Place the thread on the hook again and pass it through both loops.
The main loops when crocheting are columns. There are double crochet, single crochet, half crochet, and so on. Let's consider the most simple ones.
To knit a half-column, make a chain of chain loops, and then insert the hook in the third one from the one on the hook. Prying a working thread, pass it through the loop of the chain and the one on your hook. The half-column is ready. Then repeat this loop, threading the hook into each chain loop.
The single crochet is knitted as follows. Insert the hook into the third loop as in the previous example.
The double crochet is a modification of the previous loop. Insert the hook into the fourth loop of the chain, pull the loop from the working thread into it. Throw a working thread over the hook, pull it through the loop and yarn over. Then, pry up the working thread and pass it through the two loops on the hook. Etc.
Master these loops first, and then look for other, more complex patterns. Good luck, improve and create beauty!
