When I made my sky blue waistcoat back in March, I mentioned that the pattern used a different way of working the foundation chain and first row of double crochet. This method eliminates the risk of the chain getting twisted around, it’s super fast AND it’s much easier to count your stitches. I’ve been using this method a lot recently, so when I got a new digital camera (thank you Nectar Card!) I decided to make a quick how-to video…. and here it is!
I used this method to start off making this tissue box cover that I made for my Dad for Fathers Day, and I’m in the process of writing up the pattern.
If you watch the YouTube video, please let me know if you found it at all helpful!
