  • Step 4: Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first loop on the hook (2 loops on the hook)
  • Step 5: Wrap yarn around hook and bring through both loops on the hook (one loop on the hook)This is the first single crochet stitch worked.
  • Step 6: Below the last two loops worked, turn work slightly to the side and locate the "v" Insert hook into the "v" 

  • Step 7: Wrap yarn around hook and bring up a loop (2 loops on the hook)
  • Step 8: Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first loop on the hook (2 loops on the hook)
