Crochet 101 Lesson 5: Double Crochet Stitch

Crochet 101

Lesson 5: The Double Crochet Stitch (dc)

This stitch is abbreviated dc. It is a taller stitch that is used for many flowers, hats, shoes, etc.

To start you will have a chain or a different stitch to crochet in. If it is a chain, you crochet in the 3rd stitch from the hook.

Step 1: Yarn over (YO).

Step 2: Insert hook into the first stitch. 

Step 3: YO again, and pull through the stitch. This should leave three loops on your hook.

Step 4: YO, pull through 2 loops ONLY. This leaves two loops on your hook.

Step 5: YO, pull through the remaining two loops.

Done! Now you have done a dc!
