    Hi Johnny

    what confuses me is, doesn’t your stitch count increase when you do the sc row, since you start at the base of your ch1-turn instead of over one?

    • Johnny Vasquez says:

      No because you do not working into the turn chain on the next row. For sc you always work the first stitch below the ch 1.

      • Deeo says:

        Really? After all these years, I never have. Then again, most of my things have started with a dc on the row after the chain.
