Do not fear the Foundation Single Crochet …it is your friend…. especially if it is Doris Chan’s version….. It adds strength to your foundation and is easy to do…
I have become a huge fan of Doris Chan’s Foundation Single Crochet . To be honest, as Doris herself says on her blog, I have seen other versions of this foundation stitch. I have tried the other versions and quite frankly did not really like the end results. So while reading Doris’ page, I was a bit reluctant to try this again. However I do love Doris’ designs and I respect her as a designer and her knowledge very much. Therefore I gave it a go.
For some reason, either it is the way she shows it/ explains it or whatever, I understood it much better. I have started using it in my own designs and patterns and I can’t speak highly enough of it. Gives a nice, firm foundation to your crochet project.
I would highly encourage you to visit Doris’ page and to try out this stitch. I think once you try it, you will never go back again!
