This is so awesome! I can't believe I have been crocheting for all these years and have never learned these stitches Think of all the time & unraveling I could have saved when doing afghans!
Thank you so much for sharing the links!

You mean the foundation stitches? Yeah, for all the years I crocheted w/o them.... I knew there must be a way, was told by someone that they'd seen it done, and finally stumbled across it online. Love those foundation stitches.
