Yo Yo Crochet

**** IMPORTANT, YOU CANNOT WORK AHEAD IN YO YO CROCHET. YOU MUST ATTACH EACH YO YO TO IT'S NEIGHBOUR AS YOU WORK. TRUST ME WHEN I TELL YOU ITS NOT POSSIBLE TO DO IT AFTERWARDS, SO DON'T CREATE EACH PANEL OR CHRISTMAS TREE SEPARATELY AND HOPE TO ATTACH THEM LATER... IT WON'T COME TOGETHER RIGHT ****


Yo Yo Crochet is So Simple In Concept and Yet So Fabulous To Look At. Here's your pattern.

You will find two attachments that are free. You can use the Christmas Tree Skirt Pattern as I have just coloured in the graph to show you where your colours need to be and I have provided you free hexagonal graph paper so that you can plan your own Yo Yo Crochet Patterns. 

The Yo Yo's are about 3" in diameter to 4" depending on the size of your hook.

Use a Size I Hook for best results. I have used Size K as well but it appears LOOSEY GOOSEY and probably not a great look in comparison to an "I" Hook. 

PATTERN:

1 - Chain 4 and Slip Stitch To Create A Ring! 
2 - Chain Up 3, Double Crochet 11 Times. (The first chain of 3 counts as one Double Crochet Automatically giving a final of 12). Slip Stitch at the end to complete the circle.
3 -  Chain up 3, Single Crochet into the next Stitch, Then Chain 3, Then Single Crochet Next Stitch, Then Chain 3, Repeat all the way around. Slip stitch at the end and cast off. 

Each Yo Yo Only has these 3 steps.

HOWEVER... to attach the YO YO's together, there are methods of attaching! You need to attach them together when you are chaining between the Double Crochet on the final rotation. You must do this and attach as you go.

JOINING METHODS




The braiding method creates the circles to be closer and more intertwined with each other. You decide what's right for you.
