Crocheting into base chain

I have a very quick and easy trick to share with you today - crocheting into the loops or "bumps" on the back of a starting chain. Doing this will leave a nice even row of loops along the bottom edge.

Free pattern: Tiny teddy bear

I love making these little guys as keychains or bag charms, using very fine cotton yarn (I will write a blog post about it in a couple of weeks), but they also make really cute little gifts or stocking fillers.
