Crochet - One loop or two?
I've been crocheting since the 60's and the way I learned to work the first row after the foundation chain, was to go through TWO loops, the same way a single crochet stitch is done. This leaves an edge of single loops. I checked a couple of my old books and they show it this way. I have edging patterns that refer to doing something with the single loop row of the foundation chain.
The videos at nextstitch.com show the hook only going thru ONE loop of the chain, not the top TWO loops.
Is there an advantage to it either way?
