Chain Again and Again

Updated: Sep 20, 2019

The first thing you learn to make when you begin to crochet is a chain. A chain stitch is a very basic stitch and is the foundation for many patterns.

To improve your crochet technique, practice making chains of different sizes and gauges. Your focus is to keep a consistent stitch size for the length of chain, without twisting or turning the stitches.

Start off by making a very loose chain.

Next, make a very tight chain.

Then, make a natural chain that's not too loose or tight.

Find fun ways to stitch using only chains, like this flower pattern:
