Did you know that if you'll work into the back bump behind the starting chain, the edge of your crochet piece will have a nice, finished look?
But what is the back bump of the chain?Let's make some chains; don't work tight! Now see the starting chain from the front! Notice the front and the back loop of the chain stitches. No, we will not work into those!
We will turn our chain. Below is the back view of the starting chain. Notice the strands running through the center of the stitches! These are the back bumps of the chain stitches!
Let's make a row of single crochet stitches worked into the back bump of chains, starting with the back bump of the second chain from hook.
You can see that the bottom edge looks the same as the top of the single crochet stitches! So much nicer than working into the back loops of the chains!
