INSTEAD OF STARTER CHAINS - 2 SC TOP OF EACH OTHER

Crochet pattern diagrams often suggest to start the new round with 2 or 3 chains count as dc or hdc. Starter chains never look like a real dc.

 

FIRST STEPS - HOW TO START IT

 

Instead of chaining 3 at the beginning of each row, you’ll be working “two single crochet on top of each other”. This minimizes the gap usually created by the chains in a row of double crochet. See photos for a tutorial on how to do this technique.

 

1st Step: (Do not chain.) Insert hook in first double crochet from the previous row.

2nd Step: Complete a normal single crochet.

4th Step: Complete normal single crochet again. The resulting double single crochet counts as one dc.

Instead of four starter chains (count as a treble crochet) make a 3rd sc on top of the second one. And so on... :)
