Have you ever wanted to learn how to create a chainless foundation chain? I know you’ve looked at a pattern and the first row or starting point said “foundation single crochet,” then you think to yourself “what the heck is that???” Oh noes! 😟 Don’t be afraid. They are really easy to learn and once you learn them, I guarantee you’ll fall in love with it.
I didn’t understand the hype over this crochet technique until I started designing garments. Chainless foundation chains help the garment stretch and prevent curling, which is so valuable for creating a garment that doesn’t bunch, or is too tight on your head, etc.
I have a feeling once you learn how to create these, you won’t ever create a normal chain again!
