First Row

For the triple crochet, we’re going to start by crocheting the chain. Your pattern will tell you how many chains to start with. To do our first triple crochet, we’re going into the fifth chain from the hook.

Then we’re going to yarn over twice, go into the fifth chain, yarn over again and pull through one loop. You should now have four loops on your hook.

Now we’re going to yarn over and pull through two loops. So now we have three loops on the hook. Yarn over again and pull through two loops. You should now have two loops on your hook. Now yarn over again and pull through both loops.
