This is a tutorial on how to crochet words/name/alphabets on your crochet project
Materials I'm using:
3.00 mm crochet hook
red and yellow yarns
First of all, draft the word on a graft paper, taking into account the spaces between alphabets. Please bear in mind that a single box represent 1 double crochet. (To get an accurate draft, we should draw on skinnier boxes) In this tutorial, I'm going to crochet the word 'AWIE' and my working would begin with 'E'. The arrow shows my starting point. Note that the base of 'E' consists of 7 boxes, hence 7 double crochet
step 1: double crochet as usual. At one point, wrap the yarn over, pull the yarn through 1 loop and leave another 2 loops. This is the starting point where I'm going to change yarn colour and begin crocheting the first row of 'E'.
Step 2: grab a strand of yellow yarn and pull the string through the 2 section. Tie a knot between the short yellow strand and the long red strand to secure.
step 3: double crochet. Keep the long red strand underneath the yellow strand. The red strand would be trapped inside the double crochet of yellow yarn.
step 4: 6 double crochet. wrap the yarn over, pull the yarn through 1 loop and leave another 2 loops. Now that the first row of 'E' has finished, we would change colour to red(space). Repeat step 1.
Repeat step 1 and 2 for the rest of row 2,3,4, and 5
to crochet names on kopiah, we should turn the draft paper upside down and begin working with 'A' instead of 'E'. The yellow arrow shows our starting point.
