The very first stage is to buy some scoubidous! they are now available in loads of shops and are even easier to get hold of on the Internet! The packs look like this and provide you with a sufficient amount to get started!
The first stitch you need to get comfortable with is the Square Stitch. if you know how to do this stitch properly you can take on any of the other projects!
You will often need to find the centres of the scooby strings. To do this fold the strand of scoubidou in half. The place where the fold is made is the centre of the scoubi string and this will be used to begin the stitch.
