LOOP STITCH TUTORIAL
- The Loop is formed on the back side of the project so the wrong side should be facing you when you are making a loop stitch.
- At the end of every row remember to Chain 1 and Turn.
Chain desired amount and work a row of Single Crochets, Chain 1, Turn. (I used 20 in my sample)
Insert hook into first stitch. Make sure working yarn is looped around finger you are using for tension (see picture)
Hook both strands of yarn on to the hook
Pull both strands through stitch (you can now adjust the loop made at the back of the project to the desired size)
Yarn over and pull through all three loops.
You have completed a loop stitch!!! Continue working loop stitches across the row.
Remember on the next row, work single crochets.
Alternate loop rows and single crochet rows.
Here are some front view pictures of what you get when you do multiple loop stitches and change colors. (Learn how to change colors in crochet here.)
That’s it! You have now completed the loop stitch in crochet! This really is a quick and easy crochet stitch pattern!
