DIY Hand Knit Round Pillow Tutorial

1) Make a loop by placing working yarn (the yarn you are working from) on top of tail (the end of the yarn). Leave about a foot of tail on the end.

2) Put fingers through the loop & pull working yarn through, creating a loop. Adjust loop until it is about 2 fingers wide. This is your first stitch. & you will try to make all your stitches this way & size.

3) Continue making stitches in this way by putting your fingers through the loop & pulling the working yarn through creating 2" loops. Make the loops as tight & as close to each other as you can

4) Make 12-14 loops to create this first chain. If you lose count you can count how many you have by counting the holes on the bottom on your chain.

5) Turn chain over and pull ends close to form a circle. Put the tail in the middle of the circle (out of the way). You will be working with the loops in the middle.
