successive rows, chain two, insert your hook in the second chain and
pull up a loop. Insert your hook in the next stitch as usual, and work
the loops off of the hook as before. For the next stitch, insert your
hook in the horizontal bar from the previous stitch, pull up a loop,
insert your hook in the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop.
Now you've got the
hang of it. Notice how the fabric is solid, without the tiny gaps
between stitches. As your piece gets bigger, you will really begin to
notice the drape and lack of bulk. You can experiment with inserting a
row of lacier stitches between the linked stitches rows like those used
for the Forest Flower Pullover. This tunic uses linked double-treble
crochets, but the concept works the same; you just pull a loop through
each horizontal bar on the taller stitch.
