How to Crochet - Double Crochet Stitch

I sometimes find it entertaining to see the looks on faces when I tell people that I crochet.  There seems to be some sort of understanding that crochet is not a young person’s hobby.  Fortunately, that is very far from the truth.  Now, more than ever, crochet is rapidly becoming a young persons hobby.

I have decided to make this series showing how to crochet in order to help others learn.  Written word is not exactly a strength of mine so I will do my best to explain.  If the descriptions and pictures are not quite explaining it enough, feel free to check out the video!

 

The Double Crochet:

In this tutorial, I will show how to make your first row and move up to another row properly.

 

Getting Started:

For this tutorial, you will need to know how to crochet a chain.  If you do not know how to do this already, please check out my other post here.

 

Materials:

  • G/6-4.25mm Hook
  • Medium #4 yarn.

 

The Stitch:

Begin by chaining 12.

Row 1: Yarn over your hook, then put your hook through the third chain stitch from your hook.

Once through, yarn over your hook again and pull the yarn through the chain.

Yarn over once more.  There should now be 4 ‘loops’ on your hook.

Pull the last loop on your hook through the next 2 loops.

You have just completed the first double crochet stitch.  Repeat this stitch for each chain stitch until you reach the end.

Row 2: Chain 2.  Double crochet into the first stitch.  The first stitch is indicated in the picture below.  Then Double crochet in each stitch for the entire row.

Row 3 – infinite rows: Repeat the same instructions from row 2.

 

This is the Double Crochet Stitch.  There are so many things that can be done with this simple stitch.  Your options are truly endless!  I hope that this guide was helpful.  I will post a video very shortly for this stitch just the same as I did with the chain and single crochet tutorials.  Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is still something that doesn’t quite make sense.  Happy crocheting everyone.
