Learn the basis for all crochet projects with this chain stitch tutorial!
Leaving a short tail, make a slipknot with your yarn.
Place your slipknot on your hook and tighten gently
In your right hand, hold your crochet hook as you would hold a knife while keeping the slipknot on the hook.
In your left hand, wrap your yarn once around your pinky and up over your pointer finger.
Between your thumb and middle finger on your left hand, hold your work in place.
To begin your first chain, sweep your hook under the strand of yarn in your left hand.
Rotate the hook towards you to hook the yarn. This is known as a yarn-over.
Gently use the hook to pull the piece of yarn through the slipknot.
You have now chained one stitch! The slipknot will now be your first chain.
Repeat steps 6-9 to continue your foundation chain.
