The alternative double crochet (ALT DC) chain is a great technique to avoid holes at the end of your double crochet projects. Normally, when working with double crochet, you come to the end of your row, you’ll chain three, turn your work and continue on your way. But, with the ALT DC chain, you turn your work without chaining, enter a sc directly on top of the last stitch made, chain one, then, using the left leg of your single crochet stitch, make another single crochet.
Now, that may sound confusing written in words, so, let me show you how it’s done.
