Don't understand direction


Jaz

Question

following this video:

At 9:09 in the video she ties it off and cuts the yarn but then still has her yarn to continue working so I don't know what she cut, watching it it looks like she somehow suddenly has 2 pieces of yarn and I don't understand :I if anyone can help explain what happens in those few seconds i would greatly appreciate it!!! Thank you

After she ties off , She says you want to make two exactly the same.  The one where she has yarn to continue working would be the second one.

Don't try to read too much into it--she means the goal is to make a total of 2 identical circles up to this point.  If you watch the video a bit  further you will see why--the second circle is the 'roof', and then you continue down to make the 'walls'.  I didn't go to the end, but presumably you will end with crocheting bottom and top together--you can see the seam around the bottom edge, the seam is made on the right side of the bed - this probably makes it it a little more stable and encourage it (a little) to stand up.

edited to clarify - the first circle is the floor.  The second circle is the roof and walls in 1 (eventually) inverted bowl-shaped piece, that you crochet onto the floor as the last step.

For written crochet patterns as well as videos, it is always a good idea to read (or watch) the whole pattern through to make sure you understand where it is headed--I've just been crocheting for decades and I still do this for most patterns.
