Invisible 3ch /ch3 tutorial

I am writing this tutorial to help make a neater edge for our matinee jackets or any row really where you need to start with a 3ch (UK) / ch3 (USA)

1. The first photo shows the original 3ch /ch3 and how it looks at the start of the row, it is out of place, leaves a gap and when you want to add on an edging or band to it, it is difficult to put your hook through.

2.The second photo shows the “invisible ” version, which as you can see is much neater and allows you to put your hook through for bands etc

—————————————————————————————————–

I started with a base row of dc/ sc for this example

—————————————————————————————————–

Make 1ch/ch1 and pull it tight, if you don’t it will cause a slight bulge

—————————————————————————————————–

Make 1dc / 1sc by hook through st, yarn over hook and pull through to make 2 loops

yarn over hook and pull through to complete dc/ sc

—————————————————————————————————–

The put the hook in between the two loops- i have take 3 photos to show you where

—————————————————————————————————–

Yarn over the hook and pull through

—————————————————————————————————–

I always think of this as 2 dc’s/ sc’s stacked on top of one another

—————————————————————————————————–

Yarn over hook and pull through to finish

—————————————————————————————————–

“invisible” 3ch / ch3 made 🙂

—————————————————————————————————–

This is where you put the hook through to work down the side of the row- for example when you are adding and edging or button bands

I do hope my little tutorial helps
