The first stitch to start crochet or knitting is typically a slip knot. Here is what a slip knot looks like.
I illustrated how to tie a slip knot with this Doceri video. To make this movie, I created a digital flip book of sorts, and the video shows different ways to play it back.
To explain how I did it, here I show you what my Doceri control panel looks like when I am authoring or playing back Doceri files. Specifically, here is what I see at the end of the 8th page of my 13-page digital flip book.
At the top of my iPad screen, you can see lots of buttons and ways of controlling my presentation, both for authoring and for playing back my drawings. The relevant controls are labeled below (with the help of Doceri, of course).At the beginning of the video, I played the file, frame by frame, by touching the "forward to next stop" icon repeatedly. I similarly touched "back to previous stop" to play the file backwards. Later in the video, I showed the file by repeatedly pressing the "play" button. There, you can see each frame played out separately, where each stroke plays separately. I did not design this file to be played back with the play button, but I wanted to show you the difference, since I play most of my movies with just the play button.
