This week we are moving up! Literally. The double crochet stitch is taller than a single crochet stitch.
To make a double crochet you need to have something to work from. Most likely if your just starting a project it will be your foundation row ( which is your chain).
Wrap yarn around your hook.
Insert hook into foundation chain.
Wrap yarn around hook again.
Pull through two loops.
Yarn over again.
Pull through last two loops. And you have created a double crochet stitch.
Repeat until end of row. Once you get a couple stitches complete you can see them better!
At the end of every double crochet row you need to chain two.
This is so that your next row starts off at the right height.
Flip your project over so that your needle is on the right side of the project.
Keep going! Don't forget to chain two at the end of each row.
Come back in two weeks for more step by step crochet!
