How I start to knit my toys. Cast on with hook from middle.

How I start to knit my toys. Cast on with hook from middle.

I want to show how I cast on stitches for starting to knit my toys.I make it with crochet hook.

At first make  a simple loop of yarn. 




Then insert a crochet hook through that loop and grab the yarn and pull it 

through the loop .



Then draw another loop through this loop on the crochet hook. We have one stitch.





Repeat until you have all the stitches you want.




Usually I start to knit toys with 6 stitches.




 Slip the stitches from the crochet hook onto your  double-pointed needles.




Pull on the short end of the yarn to tighten the loop and close the circle.




And continue to knit as usually.




 I hope that it will be helpful for you 8)))
