Guess what!? Memorial Day (U.S.) has passed, and thus summer has officially started (in my hemisphere, anyway) ;)! Woo hoo! I’m going to be on the move this summer – constantly in my car or working. So I need to make sure my crochet bag is well packed so that I can keep up with my summer stitches.

In packing the crochet project bag, I’d like to think about exactly what I need for projects that I can complete on the go. Because I want this to be portable and fun, for intermittent crafting, I am going to recommend a few essentials. Please add your ideas in the comments!

How to Crochet: Foundation Single Crochet Decrease

By Candace – May 31st, 2013 Be the first to comment

Using foundation rows is a great technique because they can create the foundation chain and the first row of stitches at the same time. But if you are a fan of foundation rows (foundation single crochet, foundation double crochet, etc.), you may have run into problems dealing with patterns that require decreases to be worked in the foundation chain. While you may just want to create the final number of stitches, decreases affect shaping, so it is better to make the decreases prescribed by the pattern.

To follow this tutorial, you should be comfortable with making a single crochet foundation row.
