How to Crochet: Chainless Foundation Stitches – 4 video tutorials include single, double, half double, & linked double crochet stitches

Have you ever wanted to learn how to create a chain-less foundation chain?  Chain-less crochet stitches can help up your crochet game for sure! 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.  Chain-less 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!

They are also great because you create the chain and 1st row at the same time.  I use this technique in many of my patterns and hope these videos will help you create some of my lovely free patterns 😘, as well as conquer your fear of the dreaded chain-less foundation chains!
