Foundation single crochet tutorial

This is a photo tutorial for foundation single crochet. I learned this from Interweave Crochet magazine, Spring 2007 issue. To quote the article by Marty Miller, "Foundation stitches replace the traditional foundation chain plus the first row of stitches". The traditional method creates a tight row. This method creates stretchier row that is more sized like regular rows. It's also useful when you don't know how many stitches you need to "cast on" for your project. If you're familiar with the extended single crochet stitch, you'll find that that this fsc version is similar.

These stitches are also referred to as base ch/sc and chainless foundation. Here are links to other tutorials:
