Crochet a ring - a tutorial

Ok. Today I managed to make the how to I'd promised in my last post.
Now, here is a short (extremely easy) tutorial showing how to crochet around a ring with unambiguous explanation and without any technical terms. This is how I do it.

Step 1: Tie the thread around the ring and leave a short tail.

Step 2: Insert the ring up front, bring it down ...

....take the thread and bring it all the way up.

Step 3: Yarn the thread over and pull it through both loops.

That's it. This is one single crochet completed.

Step4: Continue working in this fashion until you reach the end.
When you do, finish off the thread by passing the cut end through the last loop.
Pull it firmly and then
thread a needle and tie both ends.

Step 5: To weave it, pass the needle through the last loop and
do the stitching back and forth for a couple of times under the crochet seam.

This is the finished ring.

Make some more and wear them proudly :)

You can also continue crocheting in a pattern if you want to make the bangle more elaborate.
If you find any interesting patterns please share- I am willing to try them out!
P.S. Divya, I hope you can make lots of them now!

Narukvice su jako slatke! Mislim da bi super izgledale i kada bi ih heklala koristeci tanku satensku traku, ili trakice od koze. Jesi li probala nesto slicno?

It's very easy indeed!
When I was a child my mother had some napkins' rings made this way: several crochet rings and a ribbon through them all.
