Today, I learned that all of our talk about the foundation crochet is sort of late to the game. I wonder if it was forgotten because the people we learned from didn't have the right book (owning Beeton's instead of de Dillmont), and well, the history seems to be so commonly forgotten, particularly in our arts and crafts world. So, I give you the foundation crochet, known to Therese de Dillmont as "plain stitches for a chain".

And then, there's tapestry crochet.
