The half hitch is a simple loop that holds yarn in place on the loom. (round, rectangle, long, etc.) In most cases, it will be sufficient to simply wrap the yarn around the anchor peg. As you can see in the last photo, the yarn in the half hitch is fed under the yarn above it, making it a more secure when you need to leave the project for a while.
Step 1: Use thumb and index (first) finger to make loop in yarn.
Step 2: Turn the loop ( or twist it) so the yarn attached to the loom is in front or closer to you.
Step 3: Place on peg. Pull yarn tight
Step 4: This will hold the yarn in place, but easily removable. If it slips, use two half hitches.
