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.
Step by step crochet magic circle
We begin by wrapping the strip in the palm of the hand so that the end of it is below.
We take the back strip with the needle and take it out through the central hole.
Then we make a loop and pass it through the hole in the stitch.
Thus we obtain the initial knot, but this knot does not count as a point or chain.
We press a little to adjust and continue bringing the needle to the center of the circle.
Then we take the thread from the back with the needle and bring it to the front needle to the center of the circle.
We take the back strip, we bring it to the front.
We make a loop and close the point by passing the strip through the hole in the previous point.
We continue making the number of points we want.
Then it only remains to pull the minor thread very hard to form the magic ring.
For the next round, we begin to knit in the first point of the ring unless the pattern indicates to close it.
Then, we close the circle with a slip stitch.
How to make double crochet?
On the chain that you have previously made, you must start the point in chain number 5. You must make two loops on the needle before inserting it through the fifth chain.
Insert the needle into the shaded point in the image.
Take another loop over the water and pass it through the chain stitch.
You should now have four loops on the needle.
Make another loop over the needle and pass it through two of the four stitches you have on the needle from the previous step.
Now you should have only three stitches on your needle.
Make another loop over the needle and pass it through two of the three stitches you had on the hook. You should only have two points left.
Take another loop on the needle and pass it through the remaining two stitches on the needle. Your double crochet or double crochet is finished.
