I can crochet, but I can only do one stitch
I think it's a half double (??) Basically you pull a loop thru the next hole, to give you two loops, then pull a loop thru both of these to get you back to one loop. I cannot read crochet patterns to save my life. Shocking I know, but I make bags out of hemp string & out of strips of T-shirt material which I actually manage to sell & barter for stuff. The strips of T-shirt material are the best coz they come in all sorts of colours, plus I dye them so I have rainbow bags, rasta bags, blue sea bags..... I'd love to be able to understand a crochet pattern since I have a book of awesome crochet bikini patterns. What I really like about crochet is you can do it when the kids are awake & can throw it on the floor at a split seconds notice without any major damage.
There is a very interesting web site of crochet patterns at www.groovycrochet.com
