I hope someone can help me with Turkish Treasure from Scarf Style (pg 71)...it uses a technique of adding a new strand of yarn for each row, making a self fringe as you work by leaving a long tail at the beginning and end of each row. I'm new to crochet, and apparently I wasn't adding new strands on correctly. I found myself progressively losing stitches with each row.
Is there a trick to joining a new strand at the beginning of a row? I'm familiar with doing a single chain stitch when turning; is there a similar technique?
