Crochet 101: Double Crochet

Crochet 101: Learn how to double crochetI have been crocheting for as long as I remember. It's one of those pastimes that can keep your hands busy wherever you are - coffee shop, airport or watching TV.

In preparation for a crochet workshop that I'll be teaching soon, I decided to write a series of posts about basic crochet techniques.

If you missed the beginning of the series, you can start with

Crochet 101: Slip Knot and Chain
Crochet 101: Single Crochet

Today's lesson, the double crochet.

I'm using cotton yarn because it's inexpensive and easy to work with as a beginner. At the end of the lessons, I'll also share a simple pattern for a crochet washcloth using cotton yarn.

Let's get started.

Materials


Directions


If you are continuing your work from the previous lessons, when you reach the end of a row, chain 3 and turn the piece. This counts as your first dc (double crochet), so skip the first stitch of the row and work your next dc into the second stitch.

Bring the yarn over your hook, back to front.
Insert your hook into the next stitch.
Bring the yarn over your hook again.
Gently pull the yarn through the stitch.
You should now have three loops on your hook.

Bring the yarn over your hook.
Gently pull it through two loops.
You should now have two loops on your hook.

Bring the yarn over your hook.
Gently pull it through two loops.

That's it! You made a double crochet.

Continue practicing your double crochets for a couple rows. Again, Your goal is to make sure each dc is the same size as the last, not too loose and not too tight. Be patient with yourself because it takes a little practice.
