    What is the difference between a foundation crochet row vs chain and sc one row? Can they be interchangeable? Or should I be using a reference for foundation crochet since I don’t seem successful with it?

     A foundation row replaces both the chains and first row of stitching. You can replace the chain + first row with foundation stitches BUT the difference is you should go by the total stitch count for the finished first row, not the number of chains. For instance, if it says chain 12 and you end up with 10 dc stitches, you would want to make 10 foundation dc, not 12.

    I also love using the foundation crochet method to begin crochet projects. I am currently working on beginning Tunisian crochet projects with this technique.
