Crochet Stitches How to crochet Loops {The Loop or Fur Stitch tutorial}

Crochet Stitches- How to crochet Loops -Free Crochet Patterns
Also includes Free crochet patterns that use th eloops stitch. I  wanted to learn how to crochet loops, after someone asked me for a crochet cardigan for baby made with the loops stitch. I had only ever seen a really nice pattern for booties, their cuff made up of these wonderful loops.
 I thought there was no way I was going to be able to do it. After a few trys I got the hang of it really easily.
You are just pulling an extra length around your hook/finger before you crochet your stitch. 
I had seen several ways to make this stitch and it really is personal preference, Some show you to use a piece of card to loop the yarn around, or a ruler. I personally just prefer using my finger...The main trouble then is getting all the loops the same size, so if uneven loops become an issue to you then perhaps using the cardboard method is a better technique for you to create more even loops.

To practice this stitch I Chained 22
1. Begin with a row of single crochet.(sc) For learning I found it easier to use Single crochet (US) DC (UK)

2. Turn Chain 1 Work 1sc and then insert your hook into the next stitch.

3. With the Yarn over your finger, hold it out high (to your desired length of loop)
Catch the base of the strand at the back of your finger, draw it through the stitch.

4. Catch the base of the back strand again and draw it through the 2 loops

5. Take your finger out of the loop and insert the hook into  the next stitch, ready to repeat the process.

Unless you want loops to appear on both sides of your work, make the next row from your basic stitch you are using I was using SC for this tester.

The loops can  actually be CUT, , as they will not pull out, This is also an excellent project to use fluffy yarn.

Special note: IF you are going to be joining worked pieces make sure you keep 1 or 2 stitches at the edges without loops.
    Watch this video to see how the loop stitch is made.

The headband is so easy to crochet, and the heart well once you make one you will just want to keep making more and make them into a pretty Crochet Heart Valentines Day Garland, or you could even join them all together and make a Valentines Heart Scarf!

To Make the Crochet Head Band
Chain enough length to fit round the child head, (If you are not sure of sizing, you can just make it so the child ties it at the back.

Chain 100.  (leaving a length of wool for a tie)
Double Chain into 5th Chain from hook, (counts as chain space 2 and 1 st Double Crochet)
Work the first round { skip 2 chain Double Crochet in next} Repeat until end. (Finish with a double Chain in last chain st.
Chain 2 turn
Working back along the previous row. you will be double crochet, in to the previous Chain spaces, 2 {Double Crochet 2 chain sp} repeat until end finishing in a Double Crochet

Repeat last 2 rows until preferred thickness. Always ending in a Row 2(leave a length of yarn for the tie. Finish off.
I usually chain these ends up to give a thicker chord if being used as ties for the head band.
