Hi, I'm Jan. Today I'm going to talk to you about using a circular crochet hook. Circular crochet hooks are interchangeable with an afghan crochet hook to make sweaters, afghans, bigger pieces. They're different than your traditional crochet hook and you use them a little bit differently. So here's how we do that. Like the normal crochet, you start with a chain stitch. Pick up one stitch in each chain across. That is you can see different from regular crochet. We're not pulling it through. We're leaving all the stitches on the hook. So that's the difference between a regular crochet hook and a circular crochet hook. You leave all the stitches on the hook and you use the Tunisian crochet method or another different type of crochet method.
