      I’m not sure I understand you question. You’ll need to do a foundation chain which is a just a row of chain stitches. Then for this stitch, you’ll do a row of single crochet into each chain stitch. Then you’ll start the split single crochet pattern.

      Does that help?

    OOOOH! I really like this stitch! (Though it’ll take forever to get anywhere with it, the fact that it comes out the same on both sides is very cool!)
