When I make my crochet chain and then work a few rows. The beginning crochet edge chains are not as stretchy as the rest of the piece. Is there a method to make a stretchy beginning row chain stitch. I've tried using a larger hook but the bottom edge gets loopy looking.
If you make a hat what method would you use to have some stretch so it fits the head snuggly?
Thanks to all for any advise they can give.
