Stitches and crochet techniques used

Slip stitch - sl st

Insert hook in next st, yo and draw through all loops.

Single crochet - sc

Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop (2 loops on hook), yo,

draw through both loops on hook.

Double crochet - dc

Yo, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook),

(yo, draw through 2 lps) twice.

Invisible decrease - sc2tog

Insert the hook in front loop of first st and in the front loop of

the second stitch (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw up a

loop through the first two front loops on hook, yarn over again

and draw through remaining 2 loops on hook.

Changing color

Insert the hook in next stitch and draw up loop (2 loops

on hook). Drop the first color, yo with new color and draw

through 2 loops on hook. Continue with the new color.

Magic adjustable ring

Make a loop with your yarn leaving 3” long tail. Insert hook

in center of loop made, yo and draw up loop. Yarn over, pull

through to make your first chain. (Do not count this as your first

sc) Continue to crochet over the loop and the yarn tail until

you have the required number of scs for your first round. For

example, if the pattern calls for 5 scs, then sc 5 times into the

ring. (Insert hook into the center of the ring and draw up loop, yo

and draw through both loops.)

When counting stitches, don’t count the one on the hook.

When you’re finished, pull the tail to close the ring.

To make nice, invisible finish - thread tail onto tapestry

needle. Insert needle under both loops of first st of the round.

Insert needle between back and front loop of the last st of the last

round and pull the yarn to secure.
