*This is the knot used to start MOST crochet projects. Once this is done you can begin to chain.
*These pictures show it this way for pictures purposes. Once you get better you can hold the yarn differently to make it faster and easier for yourself. Now here we go!
Step 1: Make a loop with the tail going over the top.
Step 2: Wrap the tail under and up through the loop.
Step 3: Wrap tail under and up through the "mini loop" you made in Step 2.
Step 4: Place hook in the larger loop. Pull yarn connected to the ball tight and this will tighten your knot around your hook.
So... It will look like THIS! Now you are ready to crochet!
