Over the next few weeks I’ll be publishing a series of posts aimed at absolute crochet beginners. I post crochet projects quite often but it occurred to me that there might be people who would like to know how to crochet a treble before being told crochet a treble round a stitch post.
How to Crochet Chain Stitch
Chain stitch is the foundation of all the crochet, ever. Before you start to do any other kind of stitches, you have to make some chains first to do the stitches into. Chains allow you to turn the thing you are working on round at the end of a row and it is also the chains between the stitches that give some crochet designs a lacy kind of look.

Congratulations, you have just made a chain!
Stick around for part 2 where I will be showing how to crochet double crochet (or single crochet if you are American 🙂 ).
