Crochet basics - these are the basics, then with what we begin to knit. By exploring yet another way to set the chain we will expand the studied crochet basics.
Today we will study an additional way to set up the initial chain. And it is no coincidence that it is called double, because The dialing method runs in parallel with two loops.
What is the difference between the usual chain of air loops, which we consider as the main one and use it when crocheting as the basics from the double offered in this lesson? Firstly, it is much denser and more stable. Secondly, when knitting the first row on the existing double chain, you don’t need to hook the hook into one of the temples or pick up the stitches, as before us will be full loops, as with ordinary knitting.
We will also look at an example of how to knit in a double chain.
Double chain of air loops - how to knit
1. We make the initial loop by unwinding a long tail from the ball - we will need it for knitting. We arrange the threads, as shown in the photo below, namely, the working thread on top, the tail on the bottom ...2. Enter the hook under the "tail" ...and we loop it with a loop on the hook ... on the hook is the initial loop plus the crochet.3. Crochet the working thread ....... and we pull it through the yarn and the loop on the hook ... on the hook again one loop.repeat the operation))) Insert the hook under the thread "tail" from top to bottomput it on the hookgrab a working threadand pull it through the yarn and the loop on the hook ...We continue in the same vein ... As a result, we got a double pigtail of air loops,which can very well be used as a cord, for example, for booties or for some other products, for example. as a finishing element))) And you can tie the laces differently ... how? look in the article “Cord Crochet“
In addition, many advise using a similar technique to start knitting a product, that is, as a set chain, referring to the fact that with such a set the edge of the fabric does not pull together ... I don’t know ... the double pigtail made of air loops never used it for these purposes, By the way, we need to fix this mistake too - try)))
For those who are more comfortable learning from video lessons, I didn’t shoot a big video on how to crochet a double chain from air loops ... Video, of course, is so-so ... but what our years are like - I’ll learn to make films someday))) Now look what I shot here)))
