*Note that not all yarn can comb out, or comb out well. If using an alternate, I recommend doing a test fray of the end to ensure it'll splice.
Some links are affiliate, meaning I'll make a small commission if you make a purchase, but this is at no cost to you.
Check out this quick demo of the loop stitch. Notice how the loop shows up on the wrong side of the work.
Note that you'll be working thru both loops, and holding yarn double, but the stitch itself is worked the same as shown here.
Review other basic stitches + skills as needed.
