Step 2: A single crochet.
You need to single crochet around the hoop to cover it.Slipstitch it onto your hook.Pull the yarn through the loop on your hook after you insert it into the center of the hoop.Pull yarn through again.Continue to single crochet around the hoop until you have covered the whole thing.You can keep the stitches close by sliding them over.
Step 3: There is a chain called Chain 60.
Chain 60 stitches to make a loop for hanging the dreamcatcher.Attach the chain back into the hoop with a slipstitch.Simply insert the hook through the stitch and loop the yarn over.Pull the yarn through the loops on the hook.You can tie off the end of the hanging loop after the hoop is covered.If you want to work on the doily for the dreamcatcher's web, set the hoop aside for now.
Step 4: Chains four and slipstitch are used.

Step 5: Chain three and double crochet are used.
Start by chaining three stitches and then double crochet 11 stitches around the ring.Slipstitch into the third chain to finish the round.This round will have a total of 12 stitches because the chain of three will count as one stitch.
