Foundation Double Crochet Tutorial


Do you Foundation Double Crochet?

Don't Fear It, Try IT!!!

Do you have a project that you are working on and the pattern says that you need to start with the Foundation Double Crochet?  Then this is a great technique to learn!  Some crochet pieces are better started with the Foundation Double Crochet (also called Chainless Foundation) then the typical chain x amount and then double crochet back across for the first row.  With the Foundation Double Crochet you will get more of accurate measurement of the piece without having to frog. 
Give this technique a try and once you get the hang of it, it will become
easy peasy, lemon squeezy!!

Ch 3.  Yarn over, insert hook into the 3rd chain from hook, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 1 loop (you have now chained 1), yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over and pull through last two loops (you have now made the double crochet).  *Yarn over, insert hook under 2 loops of ch at the bottom of the stitch you just made, yarn over and pull up a loop (you have now chained 1), yarn over and pull yarn through 2 loops, yarn over and pull yarn through last two loops (you have now made the double crochet)*, Repeat*, until you have made the amount of foundation double crochet stitches you need.
