  1. I think the ch3 turning ch is mixed up with using foundation ch – you work into the 4th ch, leaving 3, when working dc (US tr) because you need to leave a foundation ch the same as the other sts. After that, you only need 2 because the top of the last st is like the foundation ch.

  2. I always find I have extra bumps on the side or end up with too many stitches if I don’t count the chain. I am always trying to go into the chain at the end of my row to make the edge straight. I find if don’t have a straight edge if I leave to chain stitch alone. I do however use the same chain trick and also find it handy when decreasing to include my chain in the Dec. I also find it handy to make a foundation stitch when starting a project, rather than making a chain and crocheting across it.
