The worst bit of blanket making, except sewing in the ends, is the initial chain. When I made my granny stripe I had an initial chain of 240 which I then had to go back along and do double crochet in every stitch!! Learning how to do the foundationless chain or chainless foundation, halves the job, as you do the chain and the first row all in one go, whoop!! You can work this chain for any stitch, for this tutorial I will be doing treble (uk terms). To start off chain 4 then yarn over go into the first chain and continue from point 2 below.
I really hope this is clear and easy enough to follow, if you have any problems please leave a comment and I’ll do my best to help.
