Chainless Starting Treble Crochet

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Chainless stitches are a fabulous option to replace the chain 3 or 4 that is usually used when starting a new row! The Chainless Starting Double Crochet tutorial demonstrated how to replace double crochets with a chainless version, and I’ve also demonstrated how to use the Chainless Starting Double Crochet in the Round and in the Magic Ring (click any of those to view their tutorials).
