How to make the chain stitch?
The chain stitch is also an integral part of crochet. After you have learnt the slip knot, this is the first thing that you need to make. In fact, once you have mastered the chain stitch you shall be able to start creating some of the basic patterns that crocheting has to offer. The chain stitch is often the first basic thing that you make when you are trying to make anything by using crochet. It becomes the base on which the entire thing sits.
The first thing that you need to do to make a chain stitch is to create a slip knot. This is easily done by twisting the hook over the yarn and then pulling it through the loop. Make sure that the ball of yarn is connected to the thread that goes over your index finger. Insert the hook into the slip knot and hook the yarn that appears on top of the index finger. The hook will rotate as you attempt to hook the yarn and then pull the thread inside the loop.
Once you have drawn the yarn through the loop, you would have created the first chain stitch in crochet. To continue increasing the length of the chain stitch, push the hook through the loop, twist to hook the yarn and pull it out through the loop again. Continue this process to make a chain depending on the length that you are looking at. Don't get too caught up about the manner in which to hold the yarn. This is something that you can customize based on your convenience and comfort as long as you are creating the stitch in the right manner.
