*Put your hook under the next vertical loop, wrap the yarn over and pull through, continue across until you get to the last stitch.  On the edge, you will want to insert your hook below two loops on the edge.  This will make a neater appearance, wrap the yarn over and pull through. (25 loops on hook total)
Pass 2: On the edge only, you will wrap the yarn over, pull through one loop, The remaining stitches will be wrap the yarn over, pull through two, Wrap the yarn over pull through two until you work all the loops of your hook, there will be a total of 25.

  5. Dear Teresa,
    Your videos are so WONDERFUL! Thank you.
    I'd like to make a blanket without the shells, and at the end, add embelishments. My problem is how do I make 300 stitches on a crochet hook? Or, if I do squares how do I convert the loops into a finished border?
