A neat trick that eliminates the need to start your round with a group of chains.
Working in the round is great for many things but sometimes those chains at the beginning of each new round can make it stick out like a sore thumb, so this is a trick you can try to get rid of those ugly chains once and for all.
Normally we use those chains at the beginning of a round to get up to the right height to begin the stitches. These starts are called standing stitches because you start it from a 'standing up in the air' position.
NOTE: This technique is best used on rounds where you'll be changing to a new colour every round. If you want to use it while working with one colour you'll need to cut the yarn and re-attach it again for every row!
