1. Hold the hook in your left hand. To crochet left-handed, you will need to hold the hook in your left hand and use your right hand to hold your work. Grip the crochet hook with your left hand so that your thumb and forefinger are gripping the flat part of the hook.
2. Practice chaining. Chaining is how you start your foundation for a crochet project and it is the simplest technique in crocheting. Start by looping the yarn over your index finger twice. Then, pull the second loop through the first loop. This will create a slipstitch. Next, slide this loop on your hook and loop the free end of your yarn over the hook. Pull this new yarn through the loop on the hook to make another loop. Continue to yarn over and pull the yarn through to form loops. This will create a chain. Make the chain as long as it needs to be for your project. Chaining is often abbreviated as “ch.”
3. Do a slipstitch. A slipstitch is also sometimes called a joining stitch. To slipstitch, insert the hook through a stitch, and then yarn over. Pull this new yarn through the stitch to complete the slipstitch. A slipstitch may be used to move from one location to another on your yarn, or it may be used to join two stitches together, such as when you are crocheting in the round.
4. Try a single crochet. A single crochet stitch is another simple stitch that often comes up in patterns. To single crochet, insert the hook through the stitch, yarn over, and then pull it back to the front (you'll be left with two stitches on the hook). Then, yarn over again and pull the yarn through the two loops on the hook. A single crochet stitch is usually abbreviated as “sc.”
