The Crochet Chain - How to finally understand the meaning of half twisting a crochet chain and single crocheting into it altogether. Before joining the 2 ends together, the half twist only the left end. The back bump side will now face towards you. DO NOT half twist the right side. The V or top side will appear. by strawberrycouture

- Customers in the past have mentioned that they had problems twisting the chain. Sometimes it'll appear like this after chaining. 

Customers in the past have mentioned that they had problems twisting the chain. Sometimes it might appear twisted and it gets a little wonky. Sometimes it'll appear like this after chaining. Well, there's a solution and this is how I always handle it. See right here where it seems to twist so you can see the top front and the side. You can see the bumps that happen when the chain grows longer. Yarn over. To get around this, you have to follow this example. Keep your eye on your crochet


Join and Twist

So you're ready to join and twist. Inspect your chain. Slowly move your eyes. DO NOT lose your place



Gently turn with your left hand

Gently turn with your left hand. Keep all the ¨Vś¨ facing up. Now prepare to half twist or turn the left end of the chain at 180 degrees towards you.




- Notice on the right-hand side, this is the top of the v's and on the left-hand side are the bumps on the back of the v's.


My right-hand stays on the top side and does not move at all. Only with my left hand do I turn the chain 180 degrees towards me. You now see the back that has a bump. The edge now lies upside down now in the very first place. Now I'm leaving the tail loose because it lets more yarn in. Remember I did not twist my right side, only my left inside here. And now on both sides, we see here's the tail and take the yarn and pull it. So make sure of both sides. Notice on the right hand side, this is the top the v's and on the left hand side are the bumps on the back of the v's.

 

The Crochet Chain - How to finally understand the meaning of half twisting a crochet chain and single crocheting into it altogether - Yarn Over by strawberrycouture
On my crochet hook, yarn over, pull through the two loops, chain 1.

 

And there is my Mobius chain, it's easier than it. Some of my customers say it seems difficult but it may seem difficult but it's not. It is not that difficult. It's easier than it looks. And now I'll  take it even further. Now we're going to single crochet.

 

My chain is half twisted. Here's my tail. I'm moving it away. Now how to single crochet in a Twisted chain.


 

The Crochet Chain - How to finally understand the meaning of half twisting a crochet chain and single crocheting into it altogether - Three horizontal loop parts of the bump on the back side of the chain, top, middle, bottom by strawberrycouture

Now I half turn or 180 degrees turn to the back where the bump side is. 


Remember the Mobius begins from the half-twist, see the v's of the top part of the chain. Now I half turn or 180 degrees turn to the back where the bump side is. Notice there are 3 horizontal loop elements: top, middle, and bottom.

 

Pay close attention to this or else the project will not go as instructed nor desired!


Insert your crochet hook

 
- Insert your crochet hook in the now half twisted single crochet loop end on the left side. Work towards the middle of the chain. The yarn is starting to twist. 

Insert your crochet hook in the now half-twisted single crochet loop end on the left side. Yarn over, pull through both loops. Chain 1.

 

Repeat around in a circular flow or a spiral. Remember, it's important to do it this way. That's the beauty of the Mobius twist.

 

Your tail will be your guide. See how it looks so far. Work towards the middle of the chain.

 

I forgot to point out to you that you notice the yarn is going to start to twist. Here's the work so far: Single crochet once into the chain.  When you make a traditional infinity scarf, you would work in the flat back and forth. In the end, you then twist it. In this case chain in the beginning thus eliminating those steps. The end result is seamlessness.

 

Here's a little tip.


- Remember I twisted it towards me with my left hand where I started.

I'd like to get every single chain and here's this little bitty chain. I also forgot to point out that I chained 53 loops. This one-half twist doubles the chain sides.

 

I'm now halfway through the work. This part is flat and it twists. See how it twisted and see how the tail faces towards me. Now, it doesn't have to be specific which direction the tail faces. For example, you're at the beginning of the round. The direction of the tail will face towards you. When you are halfway into the middle, the tail will face away from you and vice versa.

 

Here is the middle of the tail. Remember I twisted it towards me with my left hand where I started.

 

I'd like to get every single chain and here's this little bitty chain. I'll get that one too.

 

And here's the chain, Where it all began. Single crochet one and the next one.

 

There's my chain. Now I skip this one. The one where the tail pulls, move along to the next one. And now remember that I mentioned that crochet in the bottom. See this is where the bottom now becomes the top. I also forgot to point out that I chained 53 loops.

 

This one-half twist doubles the chain sides. I'm crocheting on the top side and now on the bottom side. The half twist becomes 106 chains. There are now 2 variables instead of 1. That is a mathematical term. That said, I don't have to work so many rounds.


Twisted Crochet Chain



- It has a twisted appearance and it's that half twist that makes the work all look so easy to do. So there you have it, make sure it's a half twist, not a full twist: 180 degrees, not 360.

The top becomes the bottom and then the bottom becomes the top.

 

So this may take a little bit of practice but you'll get it. So instead of doing all that back and forth it's fewer steps and it's so easy and it's seamless. And when you're working, the tail will be in the middle and it will also be your guide.

 

See where I did so far, here's the tail.

 

Whatever you do on the top, it's also going to happen on the bottom and vice versa by the time you complete the round.

 

Here's how it looks so far.

 

Crochet the rest of the way. Remember as you move along with your left hand, guide it towards you. There's no need to chain one for the next round. Work in a spiral motion.

 

I'm now close to the end of the round and my tail is on the backside. When beginning the next round, it's sometimes tricky to insert the crochet hook in the first 2 loops. An easier way is to insert it into the back loop. Now stop and look at your work.

 

There's a twist right here. It has a twisted appearance and it's that half twist that makes the work all look so easy to do. So there you have it, make sure it's a half twist, not a full twist: 180 degrees, not 360. When finished, you are free to design whatever you like. And it's that much easier. But anyway, thank you for watching.
