In order to begin your crochet work, you must begin with an initial loop on your hook. In most cases, you will create the first loop on your hook using a slip knot.
To create a slip knot:
||Step 1: Create a loop with your yarn, making sure that the tail of the yarn is dangling behind your loop.|
||Step 2: Insert the hook through the loop, moving under the tail and back out the loop.|
||Step 3: Grab tail and pull to create slip knot on hook.|
