How to Make the Loop Stitch
With the wrong side of the work facing you, instead of making a regular sc, insert hook into next st, then using your middle finger, loop yarn under and over your finger (from front to back) and catch with the hook, pull a loop through (see picture at left -- there is a loop of yarn still around the middle finger, the middle finger and thumb are holding the row, and a loop has been pulled through the stitch), finish sc like usual. Pull your finger carefully out of the loop, then go to the next stitch. Again, wrap the yarn around your middle finger (from front to back and underneath and over your finger), insert hook and catch the yarn with the hook and pull through a loop, finish sc as usual.
