For an example make an even number of chains. In that case, if we use the usual chain of the chain stitches, then the first row we make with double crochet stitches. If we use foundation double crochet, then the first row - it's the stitches of foundation double crochet. After the first row is made, we start to crochet a basic pattern.
1 row (initial): first double crochet in 3rd chain of hook, then make double crochet stitches in each chain;
2 row: 2 turning chains, * 1 front post double crochet, 1 back post double crochet *;
3 row: 2 turning chains, * 1 back post double crochet, 1 front post double crochet *.
Then continue to crochet, alternating the front post double crochet and the back post double crochet. At the same time, we make the front post over the front post of the previous row, and the back post over the back post of the previous row.
