One of the many, many cool things in the current issue of Interweave Crochet (the last issue before it becomes a regular, subscription-based mag!) is the article by Marty Miller about Foundation Stitches. I posted a small tutorial recently about these stitches, and the article in Interweave goes even further with pictures and very detailed background and instructions. Also, since there is currently no standard abbreviation for these stitches, Interweave has chosen to use “fsc” for foundation single crochet and “fdc” for foundation double crochet. I like the simplicity of these abbreviations and I’ll use them too.

    I haven’t tried these new stitches yet, but I think I might need to use them in my next big project!

    I’m so glad you like the abbrevs, Amy. There was *much* thought that went into that decision. Also, I now use foundation stitches almost all the time. 🙂
