Happy Spring! A foundation sc Tutorial

I am so happy to welcome Spring today!  I look forward to warmer days and spring blossoms.

Yesterday I showed you a new design, Seed Stitch Headband.  Today I will show you how to foundation single crochet (fsc) over a ponytail elastic.

Let's meet the characters...
 Serenity Garden from Deborah Norville, a G hook, and a 2"ponytail elastic.  

Ready!
Ch 2. 
 Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook and holding the elastic, yo, 
pull loop through, yo, 
chain 1, yo pull through 2 loops, 
fsc made, now insert hook through ch, 
 and over elastic (locking elastic underneath), 
ch 1,  yo, pull through 2 loops, 

 continue this process until you have 6 fsc. 

For the headband
Row 1: Ch 1, sk first st, (sc in next st, ch 1, sk next st) twice, sc in last st, turn.  
Row 2: Ch 1, (sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1) twice, sc in last ch-1 sp, turn.  
For Thin Headband continue with Row 2 until measures 14”.  
Twist Elastic.
Last Row: Holding twisted elastic next to sts, Ch 1, sc each st over elastic.
Fasten off.  Weave in ends.  
The finished headband...

Enjoy!
