"Crochet Turning Chain Alternatives

Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn.

These are some of the most familiar words 

in the crocheter's language. They signal 
the end of one double crochet row and the 
start of another. That chain 3 works to get 
your yarn up to the proper height for the 
next stitch. It's also (in my opinion) a fiendish 
ploy designed to drive the stitcher crazy.

You know what I mean - you've been there 

yourself. You're zipping along, you and your 
hook, dancing through the yarn and 
crocheting like the dickens, when all of a 
sudden you reach the end of the row.
 Screech! The happy momentum comes 
to a crashing halt as you poke around in 
the turning chain, looking for the right place 
to put your last stitch"...............
