How to Double Crochet

By:

6 Comments

Learn how to crochet using a double crochet stitch. This can be very useful when you're in the middle of a pattern or just starting one out.

  1. To begin a row of double crochet stitches, first chain 2.


     
  2. Yarn over the hook one time.


     
  3. Insert the hook through the next stitch. Yarn over and pull through. (Note: insert the hook into the 2nd stitch of the previous row, as the chain 2 takes the place of the first double crochet.)


     
  4. You now have 3 loops on the hook.


     
  5. Pick up the yarn.


     
  6. Pull through 2 loops on the hook.

     
     
  7. Pick up the yarn.


     
  8. Bring it through two loops (You now have only one loop on the hook.)


     
  9. 4 rows of double crochet stitches completed.


     
  10. At the end of the row, chain 2.


     
  11. Turn the work to begin the next row of double crochet stitches. Repeat from step 2 for the next row of stitches (Step 1 and step 11 are the same.)

I am just starting to get used to crochet again. directions are great, I am just a little slow.

dc2tog is the abbreviation I have in the instructions. I understand it means "work 2 dc together". Can you please tell or show me how to do this?
