Making a paperclip ice skate ornament, pls help!
Posted 20 October 2009 - 06:33 PM
Here is where I'm confused:
With the continuous wire of paper clip on bottom for blade and the larger loop to the right, attach yarn to paper clip with a slipstitch into the larger loop.
Always crochet over the beginning tails.
Row 1: Ch 2, 7 dc to end of paper clip (work first dc in the larger loop, work remain dc in smaller loop and around both wires). This row forms the foot of the skate.
I'm trying to understand how I'm starting this. I'm sure it's not that hard, just having some trouble at the moment!

where it says to attach yarn with a slipstitch, I would just make a slipknot and put the loop over the clip. in other words, you are basically just tying the yarn onto the clip.
then you work your dc stitches over the clip.
hope that helps a little:hook

that chain 2 counts as your first DC then you do another dc in that outside loop...the rest are done in the inner loop
that forms the toe of the boot
Hope this helps!
