I think its stunning and would love to learn to do this. I can only imagine the patience this takes.

Do you draw it out first?

Okay... let's see if this helps.

Here are the two loops that starberrii was talking about.


See how there's a sort of "V" in the stitches made by the two loops?
Those are the two loops you should be crocheting through. Both should go on your hook and that will make the chain tighter.



As well, here is what I was mentioning for more of a finished look.


If you go through that single loop on the back, it will give you the finished look.
The only problem with that, is its tough to get a tighter chain.


When you do make your chain, make sure you just squeeze your hook through the loop. With the pointier part of the hook in the bottom of the stitch [the part that kinda looks like a "V"]. That will make your chain tighter and will definitely help when you go down a hook size.


Does that help?

If you want a more finished edge... I find that crocheting into the bottom loop makes it look really nice. And if your chain is a bit loose, then try using a hook that's one or two sizes smaller.

Give me a bit and I'll post some pics of what loops we're talking about...

So, for those of you not in the US, do you get mail delivered 6 days a week? 

I think all of Canada [at least where I am] doesn't get Saturday delivery. And apparently some places have post offices open, but not by me.
