Drew’s Easy-On Mittens
The Third Loop. Some of my patterns will ask you to work in the “third” loop. This is referring to the stitch located behind (and slightly to the left-side) of the back loop. If you twist your stitches slightly you will see it hiding back there. I find it easiest to grab this loop by inserting my crochet hook through the back loop (from the back) and then bringing it back out slowly on the left-hand side to ‘hook’ the third loop with the ‘hook’ part of the crochet hook.
