basic crochet

Introduction
CROCHET is really quite easy to learn.  As in any handicraft, there just a few simple rules to follow during practice. Soon, you will be able to  make all the things here , for yourself or as presents for your family and friends. Later you will be able to work more difficult patterns , or even think up some new ones by yourself.
For your crochet you will need:
1.       A crochet hook size 5.00
2.       Several little balls of bright coloured double crepe ( or similar thickness) wool for practice
3.       A small pair of sharp scissors to cut the wool
4.       A blunt-ended wool needle with a big eye , for sewing up your work
5.       A ruler, or tape measure, marked in centimetres.
6.       A workbag, or box, to keep everything together, neatly and tidily

A few words of advice:
Always remember:
1.       Wash your hands and dry then well before crochet word begin
2.       Keep your fingers , hands and wrist quite relaxed, never stiff.
3.       Reverse the instructions if you are LEFT HENDED. That is, where the directions say RIGHT hand , use your LEFT , where the directions say LEFT , use your RIGHT. If you prop up this manual and place a small mirror opposite each picture the difference will be easier to follow.
4.       Keep the hooked-end facing you as you work. Never twiddle the hook around as you make a stitch.
5.       Form the habit of counting the stitches every row.It is so easy to miss one, especially the last stitch.
6.       Learn the shortened terms in crochet, called abbreviations, as you work through these pages. You will find a list of them on the inside back cover. Later on in the the manual, they are shown in brackets(…) against the full word.



First steps

Crochet begins with a slip loop which can be moved easily along the stem of the hook.



To make the slip loop

1.       In the left hand, take the end of  a ball of wool and form it into a ring. Hold the ring between your thumb and first finger, and drop the part leading to the ball down the back of the ring as shown(picture 1)

2.       Take the crochet hook in the other hand, holding it as you would a pencil, between thumb and first finger and at the  flattened  part of the stem (picture 2)

3.       Put the hooked end  right under the middle thread in the ring, catching the wool in the hooked end (picture 3)

4.       Now, keeping the loop on the hook, pull this middle thread through until the loop closes over the stem and slip easily along (picture 4 )

FAQ: jenis benang yang sesuai

Saya menerima soalan ini melalui sms dan ingin saya kongsi jawapan saya pada soalan ini untuk faedah bersama:

Salam.. sy nak buat sedikit pertanyaan ... sy nak mengait sweater n baby booties dan juga beg.. benang kait yang mana sesuai yer sbb sy baru nak mula mengait..

j: Benang kait yang sesuai untuk sweater n baby booties selalunya dari jenis wool atau wool+acrylic atau sport weight cotton atau bamboo atau mana2 campuran cotton. untuk sweater benang yang dipilih perlu memenuhi fungsi sweater iaitu memanaskan badan dan memberikan haba ketika sejuk. Benang untuk sweater juga perlu selesa kepada pemakainya terutamanya jika sweater tersebut untuk bayi kerana kulit bayi lebih sensitif. Antara benang yang boleh dicadangkan untuk sweater ialah:

2. http://www.melur.com/prod_detail.asp?owner=deenorh&category=ALL&item_id=498
3.http://www.melur.com/prod_detail.asp?owner=deenorh&category=ALL&item_id=491
4.http://www.melur.com/prod_detail.asp?owner=deenorh&category=ALL&item_id=480

Untuk booties pula ,oleh kerana kulit kaki yang lebih tahan berbanding dengan bahagian lain, jenis benang yang digunakan tidak perlu difikirkan sangat kerana kebanyakan benang boleh digunakan untuk mengait booties. Jenis akrilik biasa dari jenama tempatan seperti nona dan minlon juga boleh digunakan. Namun jenis worse weight 100% cotton seperti peach and creme menghansilkan booties yang lebih cantik dan menyerap peluh.

yg sy beli skrg adalah benang kait minlon yang kasar n cpt berbulu.. nak kait pon susah skit..

J: benang tempatan akrilik dari jenis minlon memang senang pecah dan cepat berbulu terutamanya jika dipakai berulangkali. Benang nona lebih menjadi pilihan kerana teksturnya yang lebih kemas berbanding dengan minlon.

boleh sy tau jenis apa yg sesuai n still available lg ke dlm katalog Deenor Haberdashery..?

J: katalog deenor haberdashery sentiasa di kemaskini dari masa kesemasa. jadi anda boleh mengetahui berapa bilangan item yang tersedia dikedai berdasarkan jumlah stok pada katalog. walaubagaimana pun jika item tersebut dibeli dikedai pada hari yang sama , kuantiti yang dibeli itu akan ditolak dari katalog pada hari berikutnya.

lagi 1 sy nak tanya kalo sy buat pembelian contohnya peach n creme -tropical sea rm 15 tu mksd nye segulung atau dalam sekotak ade berapa gulung..? itu sahaja sbb sy berminat nak mengorder n membeli benang kait ni..hehehe..TQ

J: kuantiti yang ditunjukkan di katalog deenor haberdashery ialah untuk segulung sahaja.
