Step 2:

While your crochet hook is still inside the slip knot, slide the hook in between your yarn and the index finger on your left hand.

Rotate your crochet hook by about one quarter turn counterclockwise, and use your middle finger, fourth finger, and pinkie to help you manipulate the yarn so that you can easily grab it with the crochet hook.

After you’ve hooked the yarn, draw it through the slip knot.

As you draw the yarn through, you will likely find it easier to complete the stitch if you return the hook to its original position facing upwards.
