WHAT IS A CHAIN? Chain stitch (abbreviation: ch)

Chain stitches form the basis for all crochet stitches. A foundation chain forms the base of your work on a flat piece of crochet, such as the example opposite. It can also form the centre of a flower, doily or granny square when a chain is joined into a circle. Turning chains are formed on flat pieces of crochet at the end of a row. They form the first stitch of the new row.
