Choose the appropriate crochet hook according to the thickness of the thread and the size of the item to be made.
The crochet hook consists of four parts: the crochet hook, the needle shaft, the pinch hand and the needle bar. A typical crochet hook is about 15cm long.
In terms of crochet material, there are generally metal, wood and plastic crochet hooks.
From the crochet hook type, there are generally double-headed crochet hooks and single-headed crochet hooks.
From the crochet needle type, generally divided into lace crochet hook, crochet hook and extra thick crochet hook.
Hold the crochet hook between the middle and index fingers of your right hand, palm facing up.
Start by making a slip stitch knot, wrap one end of the thread around the crochet hook, and pull a new thread through the eye of the crochet hook from back to front.
The crochet hook is inserted into the first crochet eye, then the thread is wrapped around the crochet hook from back to front, and then pulled back to the other side of the original thread in the crochet hook. This process is called “hooking” or “picking up the stitches”.
Continue to pass the crochet hook through the next crochet eye, then wrap the thread around the crochet hook from back to front and pull it back to the other side of the original thread in the crochet hook. Repeat this until you have completed a row of crochet.
After completing a row of crochet, you will need to hold the crochet hook from your right hand to your left hand and insert the crochet hook into the first crochet eye and repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have completed the desired length or shape.
Afghan crochet method, also called Tunisian crochet method, is a unique crochet technique. It is similar to weaving and is done from front to back on multiple crochet hooks. The following are the basic steps of the Afghan crochet method.
Start by selecting a longer crochet hook, choosing the right thread and tying a knot, and inserting the crochet hook into the same hole where the knot was tied.
Pass the crochet hook through the first crochet hook from right to left, hook up one thread, then hook up the next thread, and repeat this step until there are threads on all the crochet hooks.
Pass the crochet hook through the two threads on each crochet hook in turn from right to left, crocheting up two threads at a time. When only the last thread is left, simply crochet it up.
Before changing rows, insert the crochet hook into the last crochet hook and crochet up two threads, then into the penultimate crochet hook and crochet up two threads, all the way to the first crochet hook.
After changing rows, crochet one thread on each crochet hook in turn from right to left to form a slip knot, then crochet two threads on each crochet hook in turn from right to left.
Repeat the above steps until the desired length or shape is completed.
The Afghan crochet method produces smooth, textured fabrics that are suitable for making blankets, scarves, shawls and other items. Mastering the Afghan crochet method requires some patience and practice.
The circle crochet method is a special crochet technique that can be used to make round or cylindrical items, such as hats, bags, mats, etc. The following are the basic steps of the circular crochet method.
Begin by tying a chain link, then join the two ends of the chain link together to form a loop.
Crochet inside this loop, crocheting one thread, then the next, repeating this step until there are threads in all positions in the loop.
Then insert the crochet hook into the first crochet eye and crochet outward from this crochet eye, crocheting two threads at a time, in the direction of the circle.
After crocheting to a certain height, you can form a cylindrical item, such as a hat or bag. If you want to make a flat item, you can start shrinking the circle after crocheting to a certain height by reducing the number of threads between the two crochet stitches one at a time until only one crochet stitch remains.
The circle crochet method requires a certain amount of experience and skill, especially the part of the shrinking loop requires more patience and practice. It is also important to choose the right thread and crochet hook as they will directly affect the quality and appearance of the crocheted item produced.
