Opposite Side of Starting Chain

Dear Editor,

Many patterns say to work on the opposite side of the starting chain. What does that mean? -- Luann

Dear Luann,

The starting chain is the first chain you make to begin your crochet piece. You will notice each chain that you have worked a stitch for has a loop remaining. When you work in that remaining loop, you are working on the opposite side of the starting chain. -- Editor
