In this how-to video we teach you how to crochet into both sides of the foundation chain. We used a 5mm crochet hook and the yarn is Ra-Ra Raffia in Desert Palm.
Working back across the foundation chain is a handy trick to know and we use it to form the base of lots of our bags and pouches including our Speechless Phone Case.
Work your foundation chain, for the purpose of this video I have chained 20 stitches.
Chain 1 stitch – this is your turning chain. Work in single crochet along your crochet chain until you have 1 stitch left of your row, work 2 single crochet stitches into this last stitch.
Turn your work clockwise 180 degrees, it’s time to crochet back along the opposite edge of your foundation chain.
Each of these loops indicates one stitch. Beginning with the first loops, work in single crochet until you have one loop left. Our foundation chain is made up of 20 stitches, so I am going to work 19 stitches.
When you reach the last loop, work two single crochet stitches into it. To join your round, work a slip stitch into the first stitch that you worked. Now that you’ve crocheted into both sides of your foundation chain, you should have double the number of stitches you started with plus two. We chained 20 stitches so I have 42 stitches.
