Crocheting Directions

 


How to Crochet
  • Begin by cutting the fabric around your blanket. Leave 1/4 inch from the holes to the edge of your blanket. Cut only about 12 to 16 inches at a time so that it will not fray.
  • Make a slipknot in your #10 thread.
  • Place your #5 metal needle in the loop of your thread.
  • * * * Put hook through hole on the blanket.
  • Yarn over and pull thread through the hole.
  • Yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook.

You have now completed one single crochet. Repeat from the * * * and choose a pattern from below.  Have fun!!
