When You Don’t Like The Look Of A Chain 3 In Your Double Crochet

A viewer wondered if you could make a straight seam in double crochet when working in the round, but not have to use a chain 3 at the beginning of the round.

She asked and I created.

The video here will show you the straight seam in double crochet technique again, but this time you’ll learn how to make a beginning chain that creates an almost invisible seam.

    If I had a pattern that called for 2 Dc’s in the 1st stitch (counting the ch3 as a stitch), then, using the No Chain 3 method, would I : create tall ch and dc in the same stitch, then do a second dc in that same st also? (Being that the tall ch is not actually at st, it’s just used for height? Thank You!

    When going to some crochet pattern sites to find patterns, the only thing I find to click on to down load the pattern takes me to a page to download a PDF converter. I have downloaded it but still get the same thing trying to download patterns at these sites. Help!
