TURN­ING CHAIN (t-ch)

For an even fin­ish, start each row with a turn­ing chain.

Simply Crochet - - YOUR GUIDE -

In cro­chet, you need to add turn­ing chains (t-chs) to the be­gin­ning of rows. The rea­son for this is to bring the hook up to the height of the stitches you’re cro­chet­ing. Each ba­sic stitch has its own num­ber of chains. The ta­ble be­low tells you how many t-ch sts form the first stitch. *For dc, usu­ally the turn­ing chain does not count as a stitch, and the first stitch of the row is worked into the stitch at the base of the turn­ing chain.
