I was commissioned to work on a project that required a really long chain. After endless hours of counting and re-counting chains, I struggled to get the chains straight.
And this is when I figured out the most simplest way to create long chains without getting them twisted. And here is a video tutorial if that’s what you prefer instead.
Step By Step Picture Guide
Start your chains as normal, with a slip knot and chain up to 10 – 15 chains
Next, remove your hook and insert the hook through the first chain at the bottom. Then, carefully insert your hook back into the working loop without twisting the chain.
Continue to chain the number of chains required for your project
Once you have completed all the chains required, slip the last loop through the first chain to close, Chain 1 to start a new row.
Proceed to stitch the next row beautifully without any twisted chains.
