      A great crochet video tutorial on how to start a new row with a double crochet instead of the traditional turning chain (ch 3). Easy technique to grasp and makes the beginning of a row blend in to your work seamlessly! Especially handy when working in the round.

      No turning chain DC -- I've used this for a while now, and I prefer it to the linked crochet technique for eliminating the turning chain gap as well.

      Technique :: No turning chain DC, awesome!! This makes a fully formed double crochet stitch at the beginning of a new row as an alternative to the traditional turning chain (i.e., ch 3 & count as a dc). It eliminates the bumpy edge & big gap between the next dc stitch. This stitch can also be used when working in the round to replace the beginning Ch 3 (counts as first dc) in a pattern. #crochet
