A response for member 6656601: Look up for clearly written instructions on how to do double crochet stitches. I think I have seen what you are describing in certain patterns, but it is not a basic double crochet stitch. If it has a name, I don't know what its name is. Hope this helps. What I found unusual in the video is how he was holding his hook-- it looks awkward to me, and I would only hold it that way if using very heavy yarn and a very big hook. I was taught to hold the hook the same way one holds a pencil.

What's to stop the woven in ends from coming out and ravelling???? I always weave in my ends after knotting and my work still looks nice...I wouldn't feel comfortable knowing that the ends were not secured to each other...I would be afraid that they would pull out in the wash or even with regular use.

I disagree with Lins Crafty Ideas that there is only one correct way to hold yarn when crocheting. I have crocheted with many different people over many years, and I have seen several different ways to hold yarn. I even hold my yarn differently depending on how much tension I need on a project. Whatever way a person is comfortable with holding their yarn is the best way for them. Different does not mean wrong.

This video was very helpful thank you but I thought a double crochet was made by yarning over insert in stitch , yarn over insert through one loop then yarn over insert through 2 loops then yarn over and insert through the last 2 loops. Please correct me if I'm wrong or maybe it can and may be done both ways.

I have known how to change color using this method. My problem with the videos is the person doing the crochet does not hold the thread the correct way. My Grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 8 years old and she taught me to hold the thread the way all the "how to" books show. The persons in your videos do not hold the thread in this manner. I do not understand how they can keep the tension correct holding the thread in the manner that they hold it. If you are going to instruct someone to crochet, you should always hold the thread in the correct manner. I understand there are more than one way to hold the needle but not the thread!

This is such a good video! I knew how to change color, but weaving in the ends was exceptionally helpful! Awesome is all I can say. Thanks for providing another tool for my arsenal.
