Learn to crochet
To learn how to make a bracelet crochet need a needle, wool and above all, practice. In any store of “Chinese” or work shop, you will find different sizes needles and balls of yarn or thread. You have to adapt the needle thread or wool, ie for thick agujar choose thick wool, fine needle to thread or thin wool choose. The most common hooks are aluminum, but also can find wood that are particularly suitable for thick wool.

- Thread lockstitch : is the simplest and is used in your video Valeria to make a bracelet.
- Dwarf point: is the most basic crochet stitches and the shortest height. It is used mainly for seams, top, advance, without the work grow in height, and dwindle.
- Lowlight: it is a short point and is made without taking strand.
- High point: it is taking a thread. You can double, triple, etc.
