Chains

Each 'V' counts as one stitch. Never count the slip knot or the toop on the hook. Don't twist the chain.

Double

To count short stitches, such as double crochet, look at the 'V's at the top of the row.

Treble

Few taiier stitches, such as treble it's easier to count each upright stem as a single stitch.

Work in rows Turn and turn about!

How to continue your work

Make the first row by working across the foundation chain from right to left. At the end of the chain or row, turn the work so the yarn is behind the hook. Make a turning chain and work the next stitch into the top of the stitches on your first row.
