In the video, I used Knitter's Pride Ginger Tunisian Interchangeable Crochet hooks. Here are some other hooks you might like...

Repeat Steps 2 - 5 until desired size.

Cast off (Use any cast off method you'd like) To cast off, you will insert your hook into the next vertical bar (as you've been doing) and pull up a loop. Now, you want to pull through the loop on your hook as well. You no longer want to keep all the loops on your hook. Repeat between [ ] to end including the edge st. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
