Happy Sunday to all my tips and tricks loving crafters. Here is a Sunday Stitch for the crocheters and its dead simple. Today let’s turn a base chain, the kind of chain we start nearly every crochet project, upside down. Let’s set our first row of stitches into those little bumps that run along the backside of a starting chain.
Why? Because then you’ll have a starting edge that looks an awful lot like your finishing edge. With the base chain turned upside down, those pretty interlocking V’s will be facing out and down and that can add a nice, polished touch to projects like scarfs and washcloths. You might also find that this trick keeps you starting edge nice a stretchy.
And its quite easy. If you like this technique, you can use it in almost any worked-flat crochet project.
