I Learned the Foundation Double Crochet (fdc)!!!

I just learned how to do a foundation double crochet (fdc)!  Okay, you probably won’t understand how wonderful this is unless you crochet.  But basically, it saves me from having to do a foundation chain and then come back and work double crochets into those chains.  Anything that saves me time (especially when it comes to working in the evil foundation chain) is great!!!

I started trying to learn about a month ago.  However, I felt like I was reading Greek!  Even the pictures didn’t make any sense.  Videos were super confusing.  Today, I Googled it again, found a couple of sites with pictures, watched a video…and it’s like a light bulb went off, and I got it!  Wow!  I’m beginning a baby blanket for my neighbor…

Saves time you say….I have seen this technique mentioned in several patterns I have come across and it is confusing, but if it saves time I might have to look into it again and try to decipher it…it is a pain in the patootie to chain and then go back and work into the chain and if this deletes a step then I am all for that…..Thanks for the heads up…..

Where did you learn this stitch? I would love to learn how to do this.
