TUTORIAL: Crocheting into the "bumps" on the back of a starting chain

I have a very quick and easy trick to share with you today - crocheting into the loops or "bumps" on the back of a starting chain. Doing this will leave a nice even row of loops along the bottom edge. So, lets get right into it.

Front of the chain, showing the V-shaped stitches.

When you flip the chain over, you'll see a row of loops or "bumps" along the back of the chain.

Insert your hook under the "bump" and then complete the stitch as you would normally.

Wrong side.

And bottom. Using this method you'll get a nice clean row of loops along the bottom edge.

If you're someone who prefers learning from videos, here's a little one for you. If you do not see the video properly, head over to YouTube.
