Greetings, fellow needlers! This is Natalie. I came home in such a sour mood, didn’t feel like podcasting, but I put myself to task… git ‘er done, I said. And you know… after sharing with y’all, I’m in a much better mood.
Rabbit Mnemonic for Single Crochet: (Made some adjustments because what I said in the podcast may not have made a lot of sense :))
1.) Make a chain (or a series of rabbit holes)
2.) Insert the hook into the 2nd stitch from the right (Go into the 2nd rabbit hole from the right)
3.) Pull the working yarn through this hole from the back (Pull one of the rabbits out of the hole)
4.) You have two loops on the hook (Now you have two rabbit friends)
5.) Pull the working yarn through the back of these two loops (bring the another rabbit through both of the friends. He takes these friends away)

* I created graph paper in excel by sizing the rows and colums until I got a graph paper grid. If you don’t have access to MS Office products then you can easily create one using the spreadsheet feature in Google Docs. Rachel and I actually use Google Docs to collaborate on developing the ideas and outlines for this podcast.
