How to Work Into the Chain, Yarn Over and Pull Through | an Annie’s Tutorial


– Hello, I’m Laura and welcome to this How to Crochet series by Annie’s. In this video tutorial, you’ll
learn how to work stitches into the chain that we
made in the last lesson. You’ll also learn how to do a yarn over, which is how you move
the yarn from your skein over the hook and then
how to pull that yarn over through the hook to form a stitch. Let’s get started. – [Instructor] Once you have
worked the beginning chain, you are ready to begin
the stitches required to make any crochet project. These stitches are worked
into the foundation chain. For practice, crochet six chains loosely. When counting your chain stitches
at the start of a pattern, which you must do very
carefully before continuing, note that the loop on the crochet hook is never counted as a stitch
and the starting slipknot is never counted as a stitch. Now stop and look at the chain. The front looks like a
series of interlocking Vs, and each stitch has a bump
or back bar at the back. You will never work into the first chain from the crochet hook unless your instructions state otherwise. Depending on the stitch, you will work into the second, third,
fourth, et cetera chain from the crochet hook. The instructions will
always state how many chains to skip before starting the first stitch. When working a stitch,
insert the crochet hook from the front of the chain
through the center of the V and under the corresponding
bar on the back of the same stitch. Excluding the first stitch, you will work into every stitch in the chain unless the crochet pattern states differently, but not into the starting slipknot. Be sure that you do not skip
that last chain at the end. – Thanks for watching. Please take a moment to

slipknot going every time? We’d love to hear from you.
