Welcome to the first tutorial in the Tutorial Tuesday series, the first tutorial up is the foundation single crochet. This stitch is a must to add to your crochet dictionary list. This crochet stitch is a must to use when you are working a project that you want to make sure that it isn’t going to shrink and when you want to maybe have a little stretch. Another thing that I love about the foundation stitches, is it gives that first row is super clean and every thing is even. So grab your hook and give the foundation single crochet stitch a try!
