How to make a foundation double crochet (fdc)

In this DROPS video we show how to make a foundation chain and one row of double crochet simultaneously.

By using this method it creates a start edge on your work that is more elastic, then what you get when you first ch and then work dc into each ch. It’s also very practical when you don’t know how many stitches you need to start with for your project.

Make sure to keep a consistent tension so the stitches comes out even on both sides of the row.
