Step 7

We now going to pull the crochet hook with this loop on it through the already made loop, look at the way the loop sits on the crochet hook if you look closely you will see that the hole that the crochet hook now needs to pull through is the same shape as the crochet hook! The crochet hook should be pointing down and the wool pulled stiff. Dont hold it so tight that you cant do anything. The wool will not just slip off the crochet hook so dont be worries about that. The crochet hook is designed to just slide through the loop.
