>HOW TO… MAKE A FOUNDATION CHAIN

by izabela

>I am gonna give you a little tutorial on how to crochet series… ;]

you normally start your crochet item from a foundation (or starting chain) but sometimes you wish your edge was more flexible or was easier to fit, for very basic instructions about crocheting go to About Crochet website (crochet.about.com), I learned a lot from this site…

there is other way to start… making foundation chain from single crochet or half double crochet or double crochet or even treble crochet…

***
FOUNDATION CHAIN FROM A DOUBLE CROCHET

first make a slip knot on the hook

chain two

find the third (last) loop from the hook

insert the hook into the last loop from the hook (as shown on the picture)
and work double crochet
when you made your first double crochet find the bottom loop on it
insert the hook into the bottom loop
and work double crochet chain as long as you need it
