Crochet Rows may be worked with all of the basic crochet stitches by turning at the end of each row, much as in knitting, and then working back on yourself. In this way you will produce a simple textured fabric.
When you work the 1st. row onto your foundation chain row you begin with either the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th, chain from the hook, depending on the height of the stitch you are making. The chains that you skip stand for the first stitch of the first row.
Every following row then begins with a similar number of chains, called the turning chain/s
Step 1: On completing the first row in your chosen stitch turn your work. This can be in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction, but be consistent as this will produce a neater edge.
At the start of the next row make the required number of turning chains relevant to the stitch being used, see chart above. These chains will stand for the first stitch of the new row and are counted as one stitch
Step 2: Work the appropriate number of chains, there are 3 in the illustration. Missing the last st. of the previous row work into the next stitch. Unless otherwise suggested by your pattern, insert the hook under the top 2 threads of the previous stitch.
Step 3: Work to the end of the row, inserting the hook into the top chains at the beginning of the previous row. Repeat steps 1-3 for the required length.The Knitting Wool Store Crochet Techniques Crochet Rows
