How to crochet: Lover's knot

by Lena Fedotova (ravliki)

Lover's knot is a very simple stitch. It consists of two stitches: a chain and a single crochet in the back ridge of this chain. 


Pic 1. Make a large chain (the size of this chain determines the size of the Lover's knot, so make 
sure it is at least the height of a double crochet stitch or taller)

Pic 2. Insert your hook under the back ridge of the chain. Yo, pull through (2 loops on the hook). 

Pic 3. Yo again, pull through 2 loops on the hook. Lover's knot completed.
