A very excited little girl with her supplies! :)
1 skein of yarn (She chose the Peaches & Creme yarn- she is going to make a dishrag)
1 crochet hook (Size "F")
Note: Your choice in yarn will determine your crochet hook's size. Look on the paper sleeve to find out what the recommended size is.
Note: These directions are for a right-handed person. I've never tried to crochet left-handed but I would assume you do the same thing.
Step 1: Unwrap your yarn (take the paper sleeve off) and locate the end.
Step 2: Wrap your left thumb with the yarn as shown in the photos below. You will make an "X" on the top of your thumb.
Step 4: Take the yarn and hang it over your hook.
Step 5: Pull the yarn through the loop. You should end up with a loop (slip knot) with your hook through the loop. See photos for clarification.
Step 11: Wrap your yarn around your hook.
Step 12: Pull hook through your chain.
It should look like the photo below.
Step 13: Wrap your yarn around your hook.
Step 15: Wrap your yarn around your hook.
Step 16: Pull your yarn through the second 2 loops. See photo below.
Note: You will have 1 loop remaining.
Step 17: Repeat Steps 11-16 sequentially for the rest of your chain. (e.g. 35 times for a dishrag) See photo below.
Step 18: Make 3 chain stitches when you reach the end of your row. See photos for clarification.
