Live Video Chat - How and When to " Single Crochet in the 2nd ch from the hook". | Posh Pooch Designs

Today's Video Chat  with Sara Sach of
 Posh Pooch Designs,










See the Live Video Chat on my Youtube Channel
 at this LINK

On Today's Video Chat we are discussing
"How and When to chain, single Crochet 
in the 2nd chain from the hook."

1. How to Single Crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook.
Let's say your pattern reads, 
"ch 9, turn, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 
1 sc in each ch across. (8sc)

So you will chain 9 chs, next you will turn your work, 
you skip the 1st chain, and begin stitching in the next chain, 
which is the 2nd chain from the hook.

We do this because the 1st chain is acting as our turning chain.
A Turning Chain is just a chain  we do when stitching single Crochets in rows.
We stitch the row, then Turn and Ch1
This makes the rows turn nicely and smoothly


2. When to Single Crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook.

For most Patterns, you will use this method when stitching 
single crochet rows. Some  Beginning rounds as well.


3. When Not to Single Crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook.

As a rule, with most Amigurumi projects you will begin 
stitching in the first chain, because you are stitching in 
continuous rounds.

Sometimes a pattern designer will have you do some other method, so be sure to follow the directions given by the pattern designer.
If you have questions, be sure to ask the pattern designer.
