If you are wanting to take your crochet skills to the next level, you could do something as simply as changing the way you do your foundation chain. In the majority of my tutorials, I show you how to work into the front top loop of the foundation chain. This is simply to keep it as easy as possible for you However, when it comes to adding a border, you can sometimes notice that the foundation chain looks slightly untidy as you are working stitches into it. So today I wanted to show you the advanced foundation chain technique. 

The technique is only a minor adjustment that will take a little practice BUT it does make a difference to the finished product of your work. Here is an example of getting it correct and incorrect. As you can see from the photo, the incorrect part of the chain doesn't sit as well. This can happen if you are chaining into the back loops but then accidentally going into the front loops at times.

There is a video tutorial below demonstrating this technique for you. I'd love to know if you give it a go. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think.
