One of the most frequently asked for videos and tutorials is the foundation chains for single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet.

First, if you don’t already know, the foundation chain is when you crochet the chain row and the 1st row at the same time, saving time and making the crochet piece more stretchy and neater looking. Definitely worth learning and perfecting it.

I will know teach you step by step how to do each stitch, starting with sc, then hdc, then dc and finally tr. Furthermore, if the pictures are not clear enough I have a VERY detailed video at the end of this tutorial.
