How to crochet an oval
In this video, you’ll learn how to begin a crochet project with foundation single crochet stitches (FSCs) to form an oval base. (The first part of the video shows you how to work an FSC stitch if you’re new to it too!) FSC stitches are my favorite way to begin a base worked in the round like this because the FSCs are stretchier, sturdier, AND much less fiddly than starting a project with a plain set of chain stitches. What’s not to love? ;)
Practice Oval Pattern
If you’re looking for the pattern to crochet the oval demoed in the video above, here’s how it all breaks down. You can for sure change up the stitches to suit a different project. It’s your crochet – go wild!
