I have never been a fan of using turn chains for the first HDC, DC, TR, etc. For me, it looks out of place and leaves a weird space in the fabric that doesn't look very tidy. Instead, I use various techniques to omit turning chain(s). This is a technique that I will often use. Take a look at the tutorial and let us know what you think.
Go forth and craft all the things! 😁 ❤️ 👍🏼
