The next step is creating your first round of stitches. For our example we will be using single crochets. Insert your hook through the center ring, not into an individual stitch, and pull a loop through (see photos 3 and 4). There should now be 2 strands of yarn on your hook. Yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook. You have just worked one single crochet through the center ring. Work 6 more single crochets in the same manner.
