How to Yarn Over

There are some beginners who are often unclear about how the right hand is wound with the crochet hook during crocheting. Solving this problem can make your crochet journey smoother.

Yarn Over abbreviation is ''yo'', yarn overs are used before or after you insert the hook into the next stitch, and depending on the stitch you are working, you may yarn over two or more times. Let's start!

Note
  • Use the shaft of the crochet hook to push the yarn and turn the wrist.
  • Note the difference from crocheting out the yarn directly.
  • Maintaining uniformity and crocheting flexibly can produce neat work.

TipThe direction of the winding can be flexibly adjusted in different situations to make the crocheting process smoother. After learning how to yarn over, we can try to learn how to crochet a chain stitch by practicing with a small item. This will help a lot.
