How to work around a chain

This is my first instruction video! I need to improve my filming skills, because the piece is not always in the centre of the video, but it works for now.

I regularly get questions about how I work around a chain, so now you can finally see how I do it.

This video shows how to work around a chain of 4, which I often use to create the muzzles of my crochet animals. This is what you read in the pattern:

ch of 4. In 2nd ch from hook 2 sc, sc in next, 2 sc in last, turn. 2 sc in bottom loop of that last, sc in next, 2 sc in next = 10

I hope this video helped you learn this skill. If you have any tips for my tutorial videos, or would like to request one, please let me know, I would love to hear from you!

  1. about to start my first attempt at one of your amazing patterns…im struggling to buy lett lopi yarn.. can you suggest any alternatives please?

    1. Try to find something fuzzy, a 100% wool. Lopi is a tickly kind of yarn if you wear it, so not soft and flexible. If you can’t find anything fuzzy enough, you can work doubled with a strand of a mohair blend like Drops Kid-Silk.
