Work your foundation chain.

2.

Chain an additional 3 stitches, this is your turning chain and you must work this step at the beginning of every row.

3.

You’re going to work your first double crochet stitch into the 4th chain from the hook (remember not to count the loop on your hook!)

Move the hook underneath the yarn and then over it to create a loop.

5.

Insert your hook into the 4th chain stitch and draw through a loop of yarn – you should now be able to count 3 loops on your hook in total.
