Take your crochet skills to the next level with this knotless foundation chain. Working your foundation chain without a knot will reduce any bulkiness to your work. This makes it ideal for when you’re working a crochet border and want to keep things neat and tidy.

Crochet bulkiness? KNOT today, thank you.

This knotless foundation chain is the perfect partner to blanket projects. Fancy getting cosy? Take a look at my collection of crochet blankets here.

Bonkers about blankets? You’ll LOVE my new pattern Circle of Hope.



The only things you’ll really need for this project is your selected yarn and your hook which you are using for your project.

The yarn that I have used in this sample is Paintbox Simply Chunky in Dusky Lilac.


  1. Create loop

    Make a loop with your tail end facing you.

  2. Insert hook

    Insert the hook into the loop from front to back.

  3. Chain

    Yarn over the hook and drawn through a loop to build you chain. Repeat this for around 5 chains.

  4. Continue

    Gently pull on the tail end to position your first chain. Count your chain and build as desired.
