Crocheting with Three Strands of Yarn

  1. Begin by making the yarn into an S-shape.
  2. Pinch the center of the S to pick up 3 strands of yarn.
  3. Make a slipknot onto your crochet hook, wrapping all 3 strands together.
  4. Placing your fingers through the lp of yarn, pick up the single strand of yarn coming from the cake and pull it through the lp.
  5. Pull a length of yarn off of the cake to make a long lp.
  6. Pull the 3 strands of yarn together so that the single strand winds off of the cake to join the new long lp.
  7. Crochet using all 3 strands.
  8. Rep the chaining method when you reach the end of a lp; pull the single strand through the end of the lp to make a new long lp and allow the single strand to pull off of the cake as you crochet along.

      Hi Diana! Yes, this is a magazine subscription, but not a traditional print magazine subscription. I Like Crochet is a digital-only publication with instant access to all of our past issues. Let us know if you have any questions! – Nicola

      I think the confusion comes from are you using only one strand as the slip knot? I thought it was very confusing as well to be honest. A better explanation would be awesome.

    WOW, what a wonderfully, deceptively simple way of doing this, I had always thought this was way too hard and it isn’t – Thanks for the photos.

  • I’m kind of digging this cool way to read the magazine. It’s so interactive and easy to navigate. It’s not what I expected when I subscribed, but I’m loving it !
