    I’ve been doing this for years and it really works. Also when turning a flat piece, instead of just chaining the required amount, I turn, put my hook in the last stitch from row I just completed and then chain the amount. It makes a much stronger neater edge. The chain and double crochet (if I’m working in dc, is too bulky for the end of a flat row, but in the round it is great.

    I’m new to crocheting and I think I was doing that extra stich but in the end of chrocheting my cowl neck, where it joins, was much taller than the rest of the scarf. I have taken it apart so so many times!!!
