Crochet in the Back Loop

Sharing is caring!

When I first started crocheting I always hated how my first row would look. It didn't match my finishing row or round and it bothered me. One of my fellow crochet friends shared this tip with me and I've loved the look ever since. It was such a simple solution that didn't require any more work, just where my hook entered the chain stitch. By turning my chain and working in the back loop it created a beginning edge that was what I was hoping for. So what are your thoughts on this? Do you think you will use this method? If you like it please share the tip with a crochet friend <3
