Chain Stitch for Crocheting

This is my first attempt in writing directions for crocheting for the public. The chain stitch is the foundation in all of your crochet projects. Depending which hand you use the opposite one holds the yarn and your dominate hand uses the crochet hook.

The first picture: How the chain stitch looks when completed.

The second one: Place yarn in hook where my index finger is located. Then pull the yarn through the loop where my thumb is.

Side note: I'm learning to use the camera with one hand while I hold hook and yarn. The location has a lot of light... well need to take pictures else where for them to be clearer.
