Watch Judith Durant demonstrate how to make this chainless foundation stitch.

Foundation single crochet (FSC) appears in several of the projects in Crochet One-Skein Wonders® for Babies and it works well when a crochet project requires a firm but elastic edge. It’s an especially useful technique when doing a long cast-on because it combines your foundation chain with your first row of stitches in a single step.

Learn how to make a foundation single crochet with this video tutorial featuring teacher and author Judith Durant:
