Double crochet stitch
The double crochet stitch stands taller than its single counterpart, offering more stretch and a different texture. It’s a fundamental stitch that adds depth and character to projects.
Steps for double crochet stitch
Start with a Chain: Begin with a foundation chain of your desired length.
Yarn Over (YO): Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook.
Insert Hook: Insert your hook into the third chain from the hook (the first two chains will count as your turning chain).
Yarn Over Again: Catch the yarn with your hook and pull it through. You should now have three loops on your hook.
First Pull Through: Yarn over once more and pull through the first two loops on your hook. Now, two loops should remain.
Second Pull Through: Yarn over again and pull through the remaining two loops.
Continue: For the next stitch and onward, you’ll yarn over and insert your hook into the next chain, then repeat steps 4-6.
Rows: At the end of your row, chain two (this acts as your turning chain) and turn your work. Your next double crochet will be in the stitch directly after the turning chain.
