Figure eight stitch on an Authentic Knitting Board Tadpole loom. Creates a lovey double sided fabric - cross stitch on one side and stockinette on the other. The yarn is Misty Alpaca Hand Painted Chunky in Pico.
Before learning this technique, I would just pull the end tightly and weave it in. That leaves a little bump in edge of the crochet. This technique show you how to "fake" a crochet stitch to connect the last stitch to the first stitch of the row, which looks awesome.
