See It Crochet It title cardStitches Midwest 2016: Take a look at Moogly’s video on the chainless double crochet (to take the place of a ch-3 turning chain). She also had a video on the Magic Ring/Magic Loop technique. I usually use a variation on the Magic Ring/Loop, which I cover in any  classes online. Somebody mentioned using highlighter tape to help keep track of where you are in a pattern. It’s available from your local yarn shop or online. I found a package of 6 on Amazon, which seems like a pretty good deal.
