    I have lost the use of my crocheting hand thumb. Trying to figure how to hold the hooks and can’t figure it yet. Any photos for suggestions?

    I see only two left hand videos. No right hand. Can you post the right hand video please? Thanks!

    I made this hat and it was quite easy. The only thing I did different was to carry my colors up instead of cutting them for each row.

    I don’t think I ever really understood the back loop to crochet into. It is a lot harder than you make it seem which makes,me believe I’m just not doing it correctly. The finished product looks fine, but it is time-consuming and annoying to constantly fish around for a place the hook fits for the next crochet stitch.

      Marilyn, I think you are making it harder than it is. When doing a normal crochet stitch, you are inserting through two, loops. As you insert, you will pass through first the front loop, then the back loop, then yarn over and pull through two loops. For a back loop only, you simply avoid that front loop and grab ONLY the back loop, yarn over and pull through exactly as if you had grabbed both loops. It really is easy. Here’s a video Mikey di about front and back loop and front and back post stitching. Hope it helps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTjEmVcxSaU

    This pattern calls for carrying your yarn along, I would love to know how to do this! The video does not show this! Help!

      A cute hat, but was looking to make in team colors (2)l. Made a sample of 5 repeats and it looked cool, but wanted it to go with the V stitch wristlets so ultimately went with that. I did alternating rows and carried the yarn. But the drop down was always worked in the front loop of the other color. Suppose I could have just done a DC instead of a TC and only gone down to the next row.

      Just drop the color rather than cut. Do not work the ‘straggler’ as Mikey does. When it is time to reuse the color, bring it up and treat it like Mikey does except there will not be a straggler. Look at the tutorial for the V stitch Wristlets. Mikey carries the yarn through in that one.
