Shred Betties demonstrates crocheting a double crochet stitch into the starting loop for making a beanie step by step. It's as easy as simple math! You'll need the following: crochet hook, yarn. To have 3 loops on your hook: insert hook in top loop of the chain, yarn over, insert in the big loop, yarn over and pull yarn through big loop. Pull yarn through 2 loops on your hook so there will be 2 loops left on the hook. Yarn over and pull yarn through the 2 loops remaining on the hook. This completes the first double crochet stitch into the loop in round one 1. Take note that when counting, this is the 2nd stitch since the chain of 3 counts = 1 stitch. Follow these steps and you'll be a step closer to making your own beanie.
