Crochet 101: Double Crochet by Crochet Geek


Double Crochet


You can work a chain 3 for the beginning double crochet or work a chain, pull up and then work the full double crochet.  I have come to like the last technique better since it does not leave the holes that come with the chain.

To work the double crochet, wrap the yarn over your hook, insert your hook through the top of the stitch, wrap the yarn over your hook, pull through two loops, wrap the yarn over your hook pull through two loops to complete the double crochet.
