Crochet Info

MAGIC CIRCLE: This technique is ideal if you want to avoid that there is hole at the beginning of the Arbeitein. Holding the end of thread, wrap the yarn around your left index finger. Keep the loop with your left thumb and middle finger. Get the thread out and crochet 1 ch, then crochet the number to the yarn loop. The circle move in together at the end.
CIRCLE crochet: proceed with the second round after the last DC and crochet 1 DC in each DC. Mark the beginning of the round and let you follow the marking of work.
2 DC together: * insert in next St and pick up the thread *, from *-* repeat once, make a yo and pull through the 3 STS on needle.
COLOUR change: So that the color change is nice, working the last St of the previous round as follows: Pierce in last St, pick up thread, with the new color, make a yo and pull the envelope through all STS.
