This video is hopefully a better version
about starting to crochet round using t-shirt yarn, so starting, and the old
video was made very quickly when someone just asked me a question in a Facebook
group. So you need t-shirt yarn. I’ve cut this myself but you can buy it and then
some sort of, this is cotton, something that you are going to crochet it
together with. So we start by making a stitch, there, and then here’s the start of
the t-shirt yarn and I have cut it sort of tapered in. Then you start
crocheting around the t-shirt yarn, the cotton yarn goes under the t-shirt yarn
and you need to make the first single crochet close to the tip of the t-shirt
yarn. This isn’t actually close enough, I’ll move it, can be easier to do it that
way. There. So that’s one single crochet using then American term, it’s double
crochet in British terms. Then you chain one and go round it again, one single
crochet and so on, you make a bit of these until you can go around, until it’s
big enough so you can go around. Like this here and now I’ll twist this
round. I need to get to the stitches on top of it there, like this here. I have
the same stitch there and then I will put this t-shirt yarn here, on top of it
and insert the hook under the chain stitch like, that and go and get
the yarn and make a single crochet so that the t-shirt yarn stays in between.
Then again, single crochet, hook into the next gap, single crochet and so on. This
actually was a little bit too loose so I pulled it a bit. This is how you continue.
You could, as I said earlier, you could have two chain stitches so you won’t
need too many stitches all the time, it stays together with a bit less. There and
this is just how you continue the whole drug or whatever you are doing. Like this
here and always into the next gap, like this here.
