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

If I were you who are having problems viewing the video, I would go to and look it up there. You can view it as often as needed, and while viewing, I'd write the instructions down in a notebook. Then if you miss something you can go back and view it again and get what you missed. Also, I have viewed it before, and not done it at the same time Connie is doing it. That might be another way to get the instructions down better, too. One more thing, if you have a membership in the website, you can save this pattern to your account, put notes in it for later viewing and you'll have the pattern video saved for later viewing again when you forget how, as I tend to do. I've saved each of the chainless foundations in single, double and half-double so I can refer back to them again later. Hope this helps you.

Is there written instrucions available for the chainless foundations ?

For jrbaldwin and others who prefer written instructions, there are instructions for the half-double crochet and the single crochet chainless foundations here:

I click on the videos and they wont play, what do I do?

I would like to have the written instructions for both of the chainless foundation. I watched the video but need the written directions. Thanks! A Morrison

I loved the chainless crochet foundation in various stitches. Do you have any of these written in written instructions? Would love to have them Thank you, Constance Rimel
