- Chain 3 and turn.
- Skip the next stitch, double crochet in each of the next 3 stitches.
- Insert the hook, from front to back, into the first stitch skipped.
- Draw up a loop, loosely, bring it to the top of the last double crochet worked, and finish the double crochet with yarn over, and through the loops.
