In this lesson, you’ll learn how to make a slip knot and a foundation chain. As the name suggests, this chain will be the foundation of your crochet, and you will be working stitches into it for your first row. There will be a new video approximately once a week until the series is completed. You can find the entire Learn to Crochet series here, and as new videos come out I will add the links. Next week, I’ll show you how to work a row of single crochet stitches!



Just like any other skill, learning crochet takes practice. Soon though, you’ll be making all sorts of things with nothing more than a ball of yarn and a hook. It’s kind of like a super power!

I know most of my regular readers are already accomplished crocheters. If any of you know someone who might want to learn, please pass this along!
