getting really into crocheting - just learned this ribbed stitch and I LOVE the way it turns out!

Before learning this technique, I would just pull the end tightly and weave it in. That leaves a little bump in edge of the crochet. This technique show you how to "fake" a crochet stitch to connect the last stitch to the first stitch of the row, which looks awesome.
