Foundation Single Crochet (FSC)

Stitch Description

The Foundation Single Crochet is a method of beginning a project allows you to work your foundation row at the same time as your first row, using the single crochet stitch. It’s great for projects that may have a long foundation row. It creates a different, but attractive, style of edge than the traditional foundation chain.
