Advertisement Step 1 Hold the tail of the ball of yarn in your left hand and drape the yarn clockwise over the top of it to form a loose, circular loop. Step 2 Hold the loop between left thumb and forefinger, then insert the crochet hook through the centre of the loop from front to back. Step 3 Catch the ball end of the yarn with the hook and pull it back through the centre of the loop, taking the yarn through with it. Step 4 Pull both ends of the yarn to tighten the knot, then pull just the ball end to tighten the loop so it’s close to the hook, but not touching it.
