Crocheting Around a Chain
First make a chain.
(When crocheting in rows, the loops highlighted in red are called the back loops, those in yellow the front loops. Because we flip the work when crocheting around a chain, the back loops become the front loops so I’ll just call them Side 1 loops and Side 2 loops.)
Single crochet in second Side 1 Loop from the end.
Continue placing a single crochet in each Side 1 Loop.
Until you reach the end. Chain 1.
Turn work upside down. Single crochet in first Side 2 Loop.
Continue crocheting in Side 2 Loops.
When you reach the end, chain 1. You’ve completed your first round. For the next round follow the pattern instructions just as you would if you were crocheting around a ring.
