Have you ever heard of foundation chain crochet? Foundation crochet is a method of beginning, and extending, crochet without the use of chains. Yes, you heard me right. You’ll never have to start a project with a row of chains every again. You can also use this fabulous method to extend a row of crochet on a piece you are working.
Knowing this opens up so many more designing possibilities. It also makes it easier for you to follow patterns, such as my own. I use foundation stitches in many of my patterns. I use them for garments, for tote bags and to begin most of my scarves and cowls. Foundation chains are more attractive, easier to connect to and offer much more stretch than a traditional chain.
