									How to Knot Stitch and More

When you start a knot stitch, you will need to avoid knot stitch the
first square. Instead, start in the first row, chain stitching one time
and single crocheting in the identical stitch. Draw up you loop to ¾
inches and Yarn over Yo through your loop on the crochet hook.

Next, intersperse your hook so that it is beneath your single back
strand, Yarn over Yo and pull it through, Yarn over YO again and pull it
through both your loops at the hook twice, and skip two stitches, single
crochet in the following stitch, and repeat your steps across and to the
finish, and turn. Complete your knot stitch on the second row. Chain
stitch five in the first double crochet and another two chains in the
next single across the middle knot of your starting loop. Chain two
stitches, a single crochet in the middle knot of your following loop,
continuing across, to the finish and chain two stitches a double crochet
in the beginning chain of your preceding row. Repeat the steps outlined
in the first row to complete your pattern.

NOTE: Chain stitching is sometimes called “Yarn over Yo.” SO when we
mention Yarn over, begin chain stitches. From here on out however, I will
refer to Yarn over as chain stitching.

One of the popular methods used in crocheting Afghans is the popcorn
stitch. The stitch works your favorable number of stitches into the
following stitch. Once you complete the steps pull up your loop into the

continue by plummeting, a loop, and drawing from side to side to the
loop, completing your step with constricting.

How to puff stitch:
Experts in crocheting use the puff stitch to create patterns in
completing the Afghan. To start keep your loops on your crochet hook and
chain stitch followed by interspersing your hook in the identical stitch.

your crochet hook. Once you complete your steps move to the shell stitch.

How to shell:
You will need multiples of six, plus one to create a base. In the first
row single, crochet into the second chain away from your crochet hook.
Skip two chain stitches and five double crochet into the following chain,
skip two more chains and single crochet the following chain stitch.
Repeat your steps across, and then turn.

Moving to row, two add three chain stitches for your starting double
crochet in the first stitch. Skip two double crochets and use the single
crochet method to complete the following double. Skip two doubles, and
work five doubles in the following single crochet, repeat the steps
working across, and to the finish, working three doubles in the final
single, skip your turning chain and turn. In row three-chain one stitch
in the start stitch, skip two doubles, and work five doubles along the
following double, skip two doubles and work a single into the following
double. Repeat your steps across and to the finish adding a single in
your turning chain stitch, and then turn. You have now completed your

Once you learn how to knot stitch, popcorn, puff, shell, you may want to
