The benefit of crochet

  • We exercise the two cerebral hemispheres: The simple act of passing the wool through a needle and then through another greatly improves our brain coordination. Mental dexterity will further enhance said rhythm and coordination.
  • Reduce stress: The simple crochet patterns for baby blankets and focusing attention on the task opens the doors to a state of calm that brings benefits to people who are going through processes of stress or anxiety.
  • Crocheting improves our mood: Being alone we also enjoy and savor the silence of our thoughts.
  • Improve our manual motor skills: The exercise of crocheting forces us to keep our hands moving and to avoid stiff or stiff hands. This healthy exercise is worth practicing for at least an hour a day.
  • Crocheting raises our self-esteem: Crocheting has one goal. Finally getting patterns for baby blankets can be something really rewarding, it is to set a goal and achieve it.

The 4 basic techniques to get started in crochet

  1. The assembly: Start the crochet by making a slip knot. Pass the strand over the index finger of the left hand and then from the bottom up, pass the thread over the thumb. Then firmly grasp the two strands that are loose with the other fingers of the same hand and the crochet hook with the other hand, insert it into the loop that remains on the thumb. With the hook of the needle, pick up from the right to the left the strand that comes out of the index finger pulling it and insert it through the loop of the thumb. After this step, loosen the yarn over and stretch the strand a little until the stitch is loose on the crochet hook. And you already have the starting point where you will start your first chain.
  2. Chain stitch for crochet: The chain is the basis of any crochet work, although there are techniques that do without it. It is the simplest point and serves to start a new row. Pass the thread of the ball from the outside to the inside between the little finger and the ring finger, and then twist the index finger twice with the thread, finally holding the knot that we made in the assembly step. This will be our starting point. Now you just have to pick up the taut strand with the needle and pass it through the hole, getting what will be the first point to count. Make as many chain stitches as you consider necessary for your work, keeping in mind that the starting point where the needle is located is never counted.
  3. Crochet stitch: Also known as a half stitch, it is a compact stitch that forms a dense and dense fabric. It also has the mission of changing to the next row and leveling out the height difference with it. To do this, make an extra chain stitch to those you need for your work and we start with the steps for the single crochet. Pass the needle, front to back, through the second to last chain stitch and hook the thread underneath. Now with the caught thread, pass it through the chain stitch where the needle was, obtaining two loops on it. Pick up the strand again and run it through both loops this time. This will be your first double crochet from the second chain.
  4. Finish off strands or join pieces: When you have finished your work, finish off all the loose strands at the edge. To do this you must use a needle to sew wool or embroider, which has an especially wide and long eye. Also, use it to join pieces by sewing them alternately taking two threads from the right side and two from the left side.

How to knit a triple-double crochet pattern?

  • As always, a chain stitch should be knitted as long as it takes to start with the other stitches. It should be borne in mind that 5 more chains must be added to the chain points that are made in order to make the turn.
  • To start with the triple treble crochet, you must make three loops over the needle and then pass the needle through the sixth chain stitch. After passing it you should have 5 stitches on the needle.
  • Then you must take another loop and pass it inside two of the 5 points you had.
  • Take another loop and run it through two of the stitches. You should have three on the needle.
  • Make another loop and repeat the procedure in the previous steps. Two of the stitches remain on the needle.
  • Finally, pass a loop and pass it through all the remaining stitches.
