How to: Make a Foundation Chain

Crochet starting chains are an essential technique for any crocheter!

foundation-chain-step-11 Make a slipknot and position it near the end of the hook. Wrap the working yarn (yarn that is attached to the ball) around the hook (also called a yarn over).
foundation-chain-step-22 Pull the yarn through the loop with the hook. You’ve just made one chain stitch.
foundation-chain-step-33 Repeat steps 1-2 to make as many chains as your pattern needs.
foundation-chain-step-44 To count your chains, hold it up so the “V”s are lined up. Do not count the loop on the hook or the initial slipknot. Each V counts as one.
