How to crochet in unworked chain loops
I am working on a new crochet plarn tote pattern, but before I get along too far I wanted to clarify my last pattern.
My favorite tote design is simple and seamless. This is achieved by working in the round using the unworked chain loops.
I had good intentions of taking pictures to better explain this strategy but my camera batteries have gone kaput. Bummer.
Hopefully my illustrations will be equally helpful!
The line of the pattern that seems to cause confusion is:
Round 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Do not turn, sc in each unworked loop of ch. (40 sc)
So, to clarify…
A row of single crochet looks something like this:
Usually, when you get to the end you would chain one and turn, working in the stitches indicated.
However, when working in the round you continue to crochet in the unworked loops of the chain, as indicated in this drawing.
I hope this helps! Get to work on preparing your plarn, there are some great new patterns to come!
