Last week we covered How to Create a Slip Knot. This week we're going to learn how to chain! Here are the steps your need to take to chain:  

  1. Create a slip knot and put it on your hook.
  2. Yarn over your hook with the working end of the yarn from back to front.
  3. Pull through the loop on your hook.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 over and over until you have as many chains as desired!

A few things to remember:   

  • Do NOT chain too tightly.
  • Try to maintain a nice even tension throughout your entire chain.
  • Move your non-hook hand up as you go (this helps with tension).
