crochet question

I am just learning to crochet. What I am wondering is when you make a chain, do you use the ball of yarn or the tail like in knitting? Thanks.

Hi, just make a slip knot around your hook-leave a 6" or so tail-and start making your chain with the ball of yarn (hook in right hand and yarn in left). does that make sense? Isamae

RE: crochet question

You make the beginning chain using yarn feeding from the ball or skein, not the tail. I can help you with any other questions.

RE: crochet question

Thanks. Any suggestions for a good beginners book would be nice. I have one but someone said it is a little vague to learn from and the pictures don't really make sense to the instructions. I need a good ole pictorial.
