Use this stitch to make your foun­da­tion chain

Simply Crochet - - YOUR GUIDE -

Hold the hook in your right hand, and both the yarn end and the work­ing yarn in your left hand. Move the hook un­der and over the yarn to wrap it around an­ti­clock­wise.

Pull the hook to­wards the slip­knot, catch­ing the yarn in the hook, and pulling it through the slip­knot loop. This forms your first chain (ch) stitch. Re­peat steps 1 and 2 to form a chain length.

This is what your row of chains will look like. Hold the chain with your left hand near the hook, to keep the ten­sion. Keep go­ing un­til you have the num­ber of chains that’s stated in your pat­tern.
