Chain Stitch (ch)

Estimated reading time: < 1 min

The chain stitch (abbreviated ch) is the basis for almost all crochet patterns.
When you work in rows, your first row is a series of chain stitches, which is called the foundation chain. In order to begin the foundation chain you need to know how to make the slip knot.
When you start a new row you use the chain stitch.
Sometimes when you work in rounds you have to work a few chain stitches and join them together to create a ring.


How to crochet the chain stitch (ch)
Yarn over your hook, pull the yarn through the loop that is on your hook.

When counting chains, do not count the slip knot at the beginning or the loop that is on the hook.
