Chainless Single Crochet Foundation

As Rhianna said, "chains and WIPs excite me"

Only, maybe that's not exactly what she meant.

Admittedly I'm not as cool as Rhianna, but I have to disagree with her. I can't stand chains. I avoid them like the plague. I fell in love with the chainless method of working a foundation row and have been using it for as long as I can remember.

I won't, I WON'T chain ever again! Check out my LIVE tutorial to see this technique in action.

You shouldn't have to either. I've offered these chainless foundation tutorials in my patterns for several years now. I know there are other tutorials out there, but this one's mine. Hopefully it will help you learn a new skill, push outside your comfort level, and let you grow as a crocheter.

You'll never want to work into another chain!
