Work a foundation chain. Attach the yarn to your hook using a slip knot, then work a foundation of chain stitches in multiples of 10.

  • In other words, the foundation chain can consist of 10 chains, 20 chains, 30 chains, 40 chains, 50 chains, etc.
  • The length of your foundation chain will be the final length of your project.
  • At the end of your foundation chain, work two more chain stitches to serve as a turning chain for your next row.
