Crochet Tutorial: Working into the Back Loop Only (BLO)

Welcome to our crochet tutorial! Today, we will learn how to crochet into the back loop only (BLO) using BlingBling glow in the dark yarn. This technique not only adds detail to your projects but also makes them glow in the dark, perfect for evening events. Let's get started!

Materials Needed

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Foundation Chain

Start by making a foundation chain (chain stitches, ch) according to your project’s requirements. For example, chain 10 stitches.

Step 2: Identify the Back Loop

Each chain stitch (ch) has two main parts: the front loop (the top two loops) and the back loop. We will be working into the back loop only (BLO).

Step 3: Working into the Back Loop
  1. Insert the Hook: Starting from the second chain from the hook (skip the first chain), insert your hook into the back loop of the chain stitch.
  2. Yarn Over: Yarn over with the BlingBling glow yarn and pull up a loop.
  3. Complete the Stitch: Depending on your project, you can complete a single crochet (sc) or another stitch after working into the back loop.
Step 4: Repeat

Continue working into the back loop of each chain stitch along the row.

Detailed Example: Single Crochet into the Back Loop Only (sc in BLO)

Assuming you have made a foundation chain of 10 chains (ch), here’s how to work single crochet into the back loop only:

  1. Insert the hook into the back loop of the second chain (ch) from the hook.
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop (two loops on the hook).
  3. Yarn over again and pull through both loops on the hook (one single crochet completed).
  4. Insert the hook into the back loop of the next chain (ch) and repeat steps 2-3.
  5. Continue working into the back loop only for the entire row.

Tips

  • Consistent Tension: Make sure to maintain even tension while working into the back loop to keep your work smooth.
  • Practice: Practicing this technique will help you become more comfortable and proficient.

Extra Tips

  • Using BlingBling glow in the dark yarn can make your projects glow in the dark, perfect for evening decor and gifts.
  • Working into the back loop only adds texture and dimension to your projects, making it ideal for hats, scarves, and blankets.
