  1. Welcome Linda 🙂 I really don’t like the starting chain either! I always seem to miss a stitch or get them all twisted about when I try to work back across – this technique is very helpful 🙂

  2. I love using this technique – it eliminates the stiff first row of projects and gives the fabric so much more stretch and elasticity!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this! I have been looking forward to trying these.

  4. I think the chainless foundations are awesome, they give such a nice look to the edges. Many thanks! <3

  5. Chainless foundation stitches were so difficult for me to master for the longest time, I’m not sure what the problem was, I think I just didn’t get which end I was looking at. Finally it all clicked for me. Thanks so much for posting all of the tutorials, they are very helpful.

  6. Wow I didn’t even realise you could do this and I hate counting chains thus will be a great help Thank you

  7. I’m still working on getting mine to look nice and neat too 🙂 I think it is the thickness of the yarn used (or the ‘close-up’ on the yarn) that gives it a nice look too 🙂

  8. Welcome Rebecca 🙂 It is very handy once you know how – It really helps for Blankets and eliminates that tighter starting row that often happens!
