Leave sts on needle. * Insert crochet hook through the next 3 sts and slip off needle, yo and draw through all sts on hook, chain 7; rep from * to last 3 sts, insert crochet hook through last 3 sts and slip off needle, yo and draw through all sts on hook. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Albert, that is a great explanation. I'd just point out that you slip the three stitches, purl wise, from the needle to the hook and then YO and draw that YO loop through the three others on the hook.
Bambi, crochet works best if you can hold the yarn in your left hand (similar to continental style). :oops: I now see you said you had limited crochet experience, not none.
I was just noticing that for crochet I wrap my yarn in the opposite direction for a YO when compared with my knitting. :eyebrow2: [/color]
