This step-by-step written tutorial and pictorial was created for someone who has never picked up a crochet hook . Using this tutorial will show the user how to make a slip stitch, hold your hands and how to make a chain stitch. After practicing these skills the user is encouraged to make two necklaces to reinforce what they have learned. I would like to encourage those who have never crocheted before to "take up the hook."
I have been crocheting for over 40 years. I recently retired and plan on spending more time with my family, friends and of course crocheting.
