I just have to share these two videos with you, referred to me by a Ravelry friend!

These videos teach how to begin a double-crochet row with a double crochet,
instead of the usual ch3.

The chain 3 usually leaves a loop that just doesn’t blend well with the rest of the dc’s.

The first video teaches the method using just one color …

and this next video teaches the method when working a color change …

I wish I had learned these methods 10 years ago when I taught myself crochet!

Hope this has been helpful!
