Trick for easy grabbing the sideloops
Sometimes it can be a little bit difficult to get a sideloop on your hook. What I sometimes do in that case, is putting my hook through the loop just below the nail. I also pull the yarn through downwards first, and then bring the hook, with the loops, to above the nail to finish the stitch further.
You have now reached the last nail (nr 10 in the drawing). The last stitch through sideloop 9 is made, and now you have to do 1 more slip stitch, if you want 10 stitches on this side. And that’s exactly what we want!
Because you have no loop in corner B to work through, you will make a temporary loop there, by working the end of the yarn into the weave a bit, around the corner nail. It doesn’t really matter how you do that, because, when finishing your weave, you will take it out again, it is purely for having a loop that you can crochet through!
Now make a slip stitch in corner B:
This is the first slip stitch in corner B, which is also the last stitch for this side.
On this picture you can see that I made 24 stitches on my loom. If you have a loom with 10 nails, you would have seen 10 stitches here. You count the stitches by counting the number of V-shapes. In this picture the first stitch is marked with an orange stitch marker, and the last stitch with a yellow stitch marker.
Now make the second slip stitch in corner B:
Mark the first stitch of this side with a stitch marker:
Now again make stitches in each sideloop until you have come just before corner C.
