  1. @catlynn1964 Yes, I go through both. There may be times that you would only go through the front or the back loop depending on the pattern. Going through both is the most secure.

  2. You said it it best to pull through through both top loops. When I yarn over do I go through both loops too?
    You are awesome!
    Thanks a million!

  3. So I understand this correctly, I would only work the top loop to avoid the ridge right?
    Thanks so much for helping me! I am learning on my own with videos and your’s are the best!

  4. @tjw1963 Thank you so much i already stared the chain so i will follow this and i hope that it turns out good. I will let you know!

  5. @Hope1981ful To make a blanket, you will make a long chain. Then you continue working double crochet on each row to make it to the length you are looking for.

  6. @tjw1963 Could you please send me the link to the video again? I cannot find it.
    Thank you so much!

  7. @catlynn1964 @catlynn1964 If you are working through one loop at the top of the stitch, you will end up with a line on each side. It is preference with how many loops you work through at the top of the stitches as well as design elements. I will send you the link to a video talking about front loop and back loop only. Most of the time I go through both loops at the top of the stitch because it looks nicer.

  8. I love your videos! I have a question though…….when I begin my next row of DC I wind up with a line running between each row. Is there any way to avoid this line? It really doesn’t look attractive!
    Thanks for your help!

  9. @filostas I never could accomplish anything when I tried to use the traditional book method. For years I thought I was doing it wrong because of how I held my work. After I while I figured out that it does not matter how you hold your work, as long as it is comfortable for you.

  10. Oh Theresa, you are the first person that I have seen that feeds their yarn as I do. Most crocheters and books show the middle finger elevated higher to so the hook fits under the yarn. Now I do not feel so lonely

  11. um, excuse me, but whenever i do the double crochet, like you showed how to here, the whole thing starts curving in. isnt it supposed to stay straight? like, it curvel like a U, sort of. but like a big one. help?

  12. I think I could do this one.. I read a book and it said just skip one chain. But you have missed more than one chain and I think it looks easier, I just ended up in a tight knot with missing one chain.

  13. thank you so much for up loading theses videos.. after all these years off wanting to learn how to crochet.. i have finally done it from watching your detailed instruction’s… it beat’s a leaflet manuel anyday..!!

  14. I should have started by telling you how much I have learned from your videos.Sorry:) I just want to know if my pattern says start in second chain stitch is that what I do? I understand your video is teaching double crochet so I guess I am wondering to do a DC does it matter what chain you start in?

  15. can someone tell me my pattern says to go into the 2 second stitch after chaining 17? Watching this has me a little confused.

  16. @starrygleam I do not know why you would be getting a circle. What I can tell you is that your stitches will be a variety of sizes when you are first learning to crochet. When you practice, you stitches become more consistent and the same in size.

  17. how come my one comes out as a circular shape whereas your one is a rectangular shape 🙁 and also when you double crochet, where are you supposed to put the needle through? i know the first double crochet is the 4th stitch.. but how about the second? 🙁 thank you 🙂
