Crochet into the Back Bumps of a Chain (left-handed version)

636 views 39 1

Crocheting into the back bumps of your starting chain gives you a very neat bottom edge, with a row of Vs across the bottom that matches the look of the top edge of your piece. A tutorial by June Gilbank (www.planetjune.com). As well as making a neat edge for scarves, blankets, etc with a straight bottom edge, this is also a great technique to use when making amigurumi, appliques and other crocheted pieces that use chains to make small details such as animal tails, flower petals, snowflakes, etc. Right-handed version: https://youtu.be/gbm4DPaGo2E For more info, see the blog post that accompanies this video, at https://www.planetjune.com/backbumps For more crochet tips and tutorials, see https://www.planetjune.com/help
