Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am appalled with this website. You promote Wizzed, with 21 storage ideas.......and what do I get when I click on the site....nothing but porn. Shame on you all free crochet to be connected to a site like this. I will not be back!

Thank you so very much for this video. I have searched and searched for the scf and had just about given-up.Now I can do a pretty cape ,I've wanted to do but didn't know how to do the scf. Many thanks.

Love it very good instructions

I've wondered how to do this ever since I heard of it... I've crocheted since I was nine, and in the 40 years that followed, no one ever did this! It's so easy, how could I not know this? lol THANK YOU!!!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I'm always looking for ways to create my crochet crafts better...Can't wait to practice and master this technique...

So cool. You did a great job. A lot of these videos are done so fast or not close up like you did & you showed the steps clearly more than once so I could follow. Can't wait to try it on something

I have a hearing problem and could benefit from the closed captions, however, the cc has litttle or nothing to do with the videos. they are a joke

This far and away the BEST explanation I have ever seen of this stitch. I have watched two or three other videos and read a dozen sets of instructions. Great Job to Mikey and Connie. Thanks BTW to the person wanting printed instructions......just search on Google, there are a dozen places to get this in print

Is there a way to start the Tunisian stitch with a chainless foundation?

I learned this years ago but forgot how to get started. Nobody knew what I was talking about. I was just getting ready to start a sweater and was so glad to find this!! Great video! Very easy to follow. Thanks!!

I have never seen anything like this. It is great! I cannot wait to use it on my next crochet project that starts with a chain!

To Member 6543288: If you save the video to your favorites it will always be there for you when you want to go back to it. Just click on favorites - add to favorites & name your folder. The way you save your favorites might be a little different so you may want to ask for help if you don't do very much saving. I have stuff that I have saved for 5 - 6 yrs. (videos also). Good luck.

good tutorial thank you

@nana1: We are working on getting written instructions for this video. Make sure to check back! -- Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I, too, would like to have written instructions, please :)

Great tutorial

Connie, you are the best! I watched this video one time and couldn't get it out of my head till I got a hook & yarn out to try it. I followed along with you, watching the video a second time and WOW, i never learned a stitch so quickly. I'm headed to the next video. Thank You so much!

I agree. While the video is helpful, and well understood; written instructions can be used as a reference, repeated.

I would like to have printed directions for chainless foundation single and double crochet

I saw this once on WLNY a New York City channel on cablevision,I tried it then and it worked out nicely, this is a good refresher.

EXCELLENT video and instructions. The best explanation of chainless foundation I have ever seen. kjravenw/fairywren try playing video again. I saw the part where she explains turning ... no skips in the video I watched.

Too bad this video does not show how to turn the work. It is skipping a few frames. She says, "turn as usual" but if a person does not know how to, it's not helpful. OTHERWISE a good video.

This is completely brilliant. You made it so easy to follow and learn. I love this!!!

Thanks!!

Will try this on my next project. What a wonderful idea. Thanks. Will return for more crochet advice.

I think if we were able to play more with yarn instead of being so focused on our projects to gift we'd realize a few more shortcuts and think outside the box more. I appreciate all the help and guidance from everyone during my short time of learning to crochet. When repeating favorite projects, I do "adjust" instructions and tend to not fasten off as much as suggested. Thank you for all you do to help us, Carol. :)

Very precise and easy instructions. I will never crochet a foundation chain ever again! Thank you!

I believe I could learn everything I ever wanted to know about how to crochet from Carol Haney. I have read instructions on Chainless Foundations before and could not quite get it. She was so clear, her voice was so easy to listen to and her yarn and hook were big enough to be easily seen, that I know I can do this easily. Thank you for featuring her and the You Tube Video.

Thank You! You made that look pretty simple. Can't wait to try it. Donna

DO YOU HAVE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CHAINLESS CROCHET AND THE OTHER CHAINLESS CROCHET. I AM AFRAID THE VIDEO WILL NOT BE THERE WHEN I WANT TO GO BACK TO IT. THANK YOU SHEILA

This is a super tutorial and I just love how easy you made the chainless foundation to do. I just love it.

I didn't know you could do this awesome thanks so much.

Super helpful. I never knew there was a stitch like this and I have been crocheting since I was a kid. Love this site!!!

Fantastic tutorial. I have been crocheting for many many years, and never knew there was a stitch such as this. Bravo to your site. I am a newbie to this site and will be coming back a lot. Thanx!!

This video on chainless foundation row was very good.
