I’ve made a short video showing you some basic crochet techniques/stitches that you’ll need to know for a project I’ll be sharing in the next few days.
The first technique is a Magic Loop – perfect for beginning a crochet project worked in rounds. It produces a small neatly closed hole in the center of the first round that is adjustable and can fit whatever number of stitches required. This method is very handy for beginning hats, baskets, doilies, amigurumi and other projects worked in rounds.

The second is a Treble Stitch (UK/AUS) – in the US it’s called a Double Crochet.
This is the basic stitch you may recognise in a granny square. It’s a good one to know as it’s used in lots of patterns.
