very basic question

Hi I'm new and a bit of a beginner…
To start a chain you do the basic knot… then you chain 1.. that is the first chain, right.?. You don't count the loop from the beginning knot, right?

I was following a tutorial pattern.. "start with 49 chains.. but she showed the knot as the first chain.

Such a basic question.. am I making sense?

Thank you for your help!

welcome. you are correct. personally I do not make an actual knot in anything. but the anchor is not counted in crochet.

again, weloome. don't be afraid to ask, that's how we learn.
