Adding with a Foundation Double Crochet

Sometimes when working a pattern a certain number of stitches is needed to add (halfway through, at the end, wherever) It’s actually quite simple to do this using a Foundation Double Crochet. The only difference when working a Foundation Double Crochet this way, is instead of beginning with a chain 3, you will skip to step 2 and working into the same stitch as your last double crochet.
