HOW TO MAKE A CHAIN

First master making a chain. Begin with a slip knot. To make chaining easier tie a length of yarn tightly around your waste and then tie the end of your chain to this yarn in front of you. Hold it taught in front of you so now you have one hand free to hold your hook and the other to hold your yarn. Put the yarn around the hook and using a twisting grabbing action pull the yarn through the loop on the hook.
1. keep your yarn tight.
2.always keep the loop on the hook loose so the hook can easily pull through.
Repeat yarn over,pull through loop to make a chain.
Tie on your wrist for your first bracelet.
Choose another colour, make lots until you can work faster making chains!

HOW TO MAKE THE TWO COLOUR HAIRBAND

Something to try if you can make a chain.
Begin with a chain using thick yarn. I used red yarn with a large hook. Hook into each hole starting at one end and chain three , slip stitch along the row. Return along the other side so the red yarn is in the middle. Use a thin or fancy yarn for this. I used cotton which changed colour , yellow,blue green.
Happy chaining!
Sew on elastic for a narrow hairband.
