Technique :: Good tip! "Most of us were taught to start the first row by crocheting into the front of the starting chain. Instead, try inserting your hook into the bump on the back of the chain. Surprisingly, this actually creates a much neater, smoother, more elastic edge that will even mirror your final row perfectly. Since crocheting into that back bump creates a mirror stitch to your last row, it makes seaming adding a crocheting edging much easier!"
