How to start Chain-less double crochet- here is a post of tips & tricks of crochet with step by step photos and video tutorial. This is a little trick in crochet which can totally change the look of product edge.
This chain-less double crochet needs little practice but the result makes it all worth. Till now we were making chain 3 to begin the double crochet row or round and start working double crochet from next stitch. But you must have noticed a ugly hole gets formed between these chains and first double crochet and it makes obvious that its a start of row or round.
I used to hate to see the uneven edges of scarves or blankets those I were making with so much of love, ultimately end up making borders. Then I tried many options to hide those holes but was not happy with results. I was searching on net for some options and came across this chain-less start trick. I was very happy with this trick so sharing the same with you guys.
Lets see How to start Chain-less double crochet-
When a row or round is completed don’t make any chains. If its a row then turn the work and if working in round then just start from next step.
Step 1: Pull a loop on the hook little bit tall.
Step 2: Hold look with your index finger firmly, so that it will not slip away. Then wrap the loop around the hook.
Step 3: Grab the working yarn with the hook.
Step 4: Draw the yarn out under the loop. You will have two loops on the hook.
Step 5: Now draw yarn through both those loops.
This completes our chain-less double crochet, then start working as per your pattern with double crochet stitch.
Isn’t it fascinating? When you finish your work with this method its very difficult to know where the row was began and edges are straight. 🙂
