      Thanks for stopping by and letting us know how you like the tutorial. It’s always hard to know if something will make sense to others the same way it makes sense in your own head!:)

      Happy crocheting!

    • Stupid question here… when you say “draw up loop”… what do you mean? I know what sc is and yoh and I can see the T stitch construction through the 4 loops, but I don’t understand where you are “Drawing up” the loop from. Or do I need to go back to a beginner class to catch that term? Hopefully I didn’t offend you by the silly question. I am self-taught. (or not as the case appears to be) lol

        It’s not a stupid question:) It might be easier to explain if I use a single crochet as an example. You draw a loop up through the stitch when you begin a single crochet. You put your hook in the next stitch, yarn over hook, then pull the yarn over through the stitch (or you just drew a loop up). I hope that makes sense. Feel free to ask more questions. That’s so great you taught yourself!

        Keep on crocheting,

    That’s wonderful! I’ve made so many of these hats – I hope your grandchildren enjoy them. I make them for boys in boy colors… so fun.

    Thanks for stopping by The Firefly Hook.
