Learn to Crochet The Double Crochet - Beginner Lesson
"The double crochet is a beginner stitch that everyone learning the basics should know. It is a building block used to create lots of other stitch types such as a granny stitch, a shell stitch, a puff stitch and so many more! This lesson will cover the basics for the double crochet stitch and discuss written pattern language and the stitch symbol one would see in a stitch diagram. I recommend worsted weight yarn and asize H8 or I9 crochet hook."
