Foundation Treble Crochet (ftc)
UK Abbreviation: ftr
USA Term: Foundation Double Crochet
USA Abbreviation: fdc
Turning Chain: 3
This is a great way to avoid having to work into the chain to make the first row of your crochet.
See 'Foundationless Crochet' for more information.
We need to wrap the yarn around the hook and and pull the yarn through just the first loop of the three already on the hook.
We'll be working into this extra loop (marked with an arrow) to make the next stitch.
