This crochet stitch tutorial will show you an alternative way to work the turning chain 3 you often see when working rows.
Using this stitch will reduce the amount of holes in your work, resulting in an even, smooth texture and look.
At the end of the row:
Turn your work, sc into first stitch, ch. 1. The standing dc is complete. Now continue to work across your row.
When you come to the end of the row, work into the ch.1, for your last stitch.
That’s all there is to it! Then continue working dc across.
