Draw a border of 1 ½ inches on all four sides of the canvas grid by using a marker. Some kits have already marked this border. This border prevents fraying and leaves to fit the latch hook art to something else, like cloth or pillow.
Start with the second to bottom row of the grid. Always make sure to work to the end of the lower row before moving to the upper row.
Take the latch hook tool and put yarn underneath it. Then loop the yarn segment around the hook.
Then push the hook through the hole of the canvas grid.
Wrap the yarn around the hook and then pull it back through the same hole. Once the hook is pulled, the hinged piece will shut and secure the yarn segment.
Secure the knot using fingers.
Make sure to place appropriate colored yarn segments on the grid according to the pattern.
Continue and pattern will be worked on the canvas grid gradually.
Cut the excess yarn segments by using scissors. The pattern will be sharpening.
