FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET
The Foundation Single crochet or FSC, is an alternative technique to the traditional way of beginning crochet projects which usually starts with a specific number of chains, a turning chain and a row of single crochets.
1. Begin by creating a slip knot and chaining 2.
2. Insert your hook into the first chain and pull up a loop.
3. Yarn over and pull through a loop.
4. Yarn over and pull through both loops.
You have just completed your first FSC!
5. Insert your hook underneath the two horizontal bars in the stitch below and pull up a loop.
6. Yarn over and pull through a loop.
7. Yarn over and pull through both loops.
8. Repeat steps 5 to 7 until you have reached the required amount of stitches needed for your project.
This crochet technique will give your project a stretchier base to work with.
Starting projects with a significant amount of chains and single crochets, the foundation single crochet can help speed up the process of creating your base and prevent you from losing count of your stitches.
