  • @tis12nv This is a stitch that you can use to replace the chain. You will continue with the half double crochet or pattern stitch of your choice.

  • Teresa, my half double crochet curls and does not go in a stright line, how do I get a stright line? Am I doing it to tight or not in the right stitch?

  • @LindaSue207 I have found that one side of this technique may work up tighter than the other side. Practice keeping a consistent tension so the stitches are even on both sides.

  • This si frustrating I can't seem to get it I chain up 2 then I continue with the first half double but I'm confused as to where I put the needle after that its not clearly shown on the video it just says in the two loops. What two loops? Oh Im sooooo confused and frustrated I am ready to cry =(

  • I have watched a few videos for this technique and this is the one that actually made sense to me. Thank you!!

  • I am just learning to crochet (like w/in the last 48hrs) and I've watched youtube galore and might have an over saturation of learing material in my brain right now. But just for clarification you can use the foundation stitch (single, half double, double..whatever) when starting out your project instead of doing a single crochet stitch to start your work?

  • Sorry another question, but if I have a pattern that says chain 15 and dc in the 4th chain from hook and each chain to the end (I'm totally making up something off the top of my head but hopefully you get what I'm saying) I can use the foundation stitch instead of chaining 15? Then go into dc on the 4th chain from the hook?

  • I agree with Tami. I have watched 3 other video's to figure out how to do this stitch and yours is the only one I was able to figure it out. Thank you for making it so easy to understand.

  • I love this lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I watched many videos and this is the only video that helped me….Such an excellent teacher…thank you so much 🙂

  • you just can't believe how difficult this technique to me before! but now I think I understand what to do! so Thank You for this tutorial.

  • Thank you, it looks so clear. I've been looking for something new (I've only done a couple styles of blankets), I'm excited to try the scarves I've seen and with your tutorial I know I can do it.

  • Ok, so now that the foundation chain is complete, which side do I use to start the next row?  Does my tail need to always be on the bottom?

  • @Kel P You can turn and then continue working the main stitch for your pattern.  It really does not matter which side you use.  I will use the foundation row for working in rounds so the tail is in the center.  Both sides will work.

  • For the hdc as well as the dc you only chained 2 to start. Why not 3 for the dc?
    Absolutely love your videos and the slow motion portion is helpful, however you DO spend a lot of time explaining slip knot in each one.

  • Great video for newbie me on this foundation stitch.   Once I see a stitch done I am gone but the written word patterns are baffling to me.
    Add to that, I am left handed.   Your videos are very clear and easy to learn from.  Thanks for taking the time to teach.

  • Thank you soooo much!! I watched a few other video tutorials, and ugh! They either used too dark yarn, or were way to fast. This is PERFECT! Thank you again!!

  • how do u determine what your foundation chain should be , sc hdc or dc… and then do u count your chain as if the pattern told u to chain 125…. would u count 125 stitches using this process,,,and then Row 2 will continue on from the pattern.?

  • I'm making a tiny cellphone sleeve using a crocodile stitch and I believe I restarted it three times… And I am going to restart it again because this foundation just answered my problems on too tight or too loose chain foundations. Thanks! 

  • Thank you for a great tutorial. I had watched other on FHDC, FDC, & FSC and could not understand.  Thank you for making these!

  • thank you very much for this tutorial. especially the slow motion video part showing where to insert the crochet hook for the foundation hdc

  • I think I've watched every single video on YouTube but you finally taught me. Thank you so much, I was so frustrated. I just could not see where to put my hook to make the next stitch. Thank you for making such a clear and easy-to-follow video.
