Brodén Stitch (1+3) (all three on the same video)

Each of these videos includes
- how to make the starting loops, and a foundation row
- different ways how to connect the new loops to the previous row (F1, F2, M1, M1+F1, B1, B2)
- how to decrease, and how to increase

Also please notice that I am right-handed, so my needle did not obey me all the time ;)
