Faux (no chain) double crochet - Pseudestäbchen - Platstuðlar


In our post about standing dc (link under the picture), we showed a great method to use, when doing a colour change after each row in a flat circle made of double crochet. But when you are doing a unicolour piece, you do not want to be cutting your yarn after each row that way. So what to do? There is a way your work will not get the "ch3-ladder-look" like you see on the picture below, that is actually from a crochet tutorial on coasters. I wish the author who did a great tutorial would have added some informations or links to get rid of this "ladder look".

Imagine a polka dot blanket done this way, wouldn´t you too notice the ladders in every dot? Or is it just me and something nobody else would notice? I say if there is an easy way to get rid of the ladder why not use it. So for all of you that feel the same, lets check out some ch3 cheets.

I used this method for the first dc in my magic ring as well, thought securing the magic ring with a ch1 before doing the faux dc. 

I found a great picture tutorial for crochet turning chain alternatives over at Mrs Micawber´s recipe for happiness. The Video down below is however from Sandra Roarty´s Youtube channel, beside this one, you can find more informational and instructional videos on various crochet techniques on her channel.

Have fun watching the video and trying out this method. Before you go on watching, let me show you my flat circle done with it, and compare it to the ladder picture above. I know I would have to look twice to see where each row starts, if the hook wouldn´t be attached. Just like in the first picture of this post, using the standing double crochet method.




So lights out and movie on :)



Kurze Zusammenfassung:

Das Video zeigt wie man die Wendeluftmasche am Anfang von jeder Reihe mit einem "Pseudostäbchen" austauschen kann. Um denn "Leiterlook", wie auf dem zweiten Bild zu sehen ist, umzugehen. Wenn in einer Farbe gearbeitet wird ist dies besonders praktisch. Für wechselnde Farben in jeder Reihe, wie auf dem ersten Bild in diesem Post zu sehen ist, empfehlt sich die Methode, die darunter gelinkt wird.  

Samantekt:

Algengasta leiðin er að nota 3 loftlykkjur í stað fyrsta stuðuls í umferð. Í fyrri pósti, er sýnt hvernig standandi stuðull er gerður í staðin fyrir loftlykkjurnar 3. Þetta er mjög sniðug aðferð, þegar hver umferð er hekluð í öðrum lit. En þegar unnið er með einn lit, er ekki hagkvæmt að klippa frá og tengja aftur eftir hverja umferð. Þess vegna langaði mig að sýna ykkur nýja aðferð sem er hagkvæmari þegar unnið er með einn lit. Þá er heklaður "platstuðull" í byrjun umferðar í stað loftlykkjanna þriggja.
