How to make Double crochet stitch-

First of all you will need some chains, if you don’t know how to make chains please check my previous post on How to make the Chain Stitch or see this video.

Step 1: Wrap yarn around the hook and insert it in 4th chain from the hook.

Step 2: Catch the yarn and draw a loop through the chain- now we have 3 loops on the hook. Wrap yarn around the hook and draw loop through first 2 loops on the hook; thus leaving 2 loops on the hook. Again wrap yarn around the hook and draw loop through remaining 2 loops on the hook. This completes double crochet stitch.

Generally one stitch is made in each chain across the row. After last stitch make chain 3 and turn the work.

Then wrap yarn around hook and insert hook in 2nd stitch and make double crochet.  That begins the second row of the work.

Note: 3 Chains at the beginning of each row are considered as a first stitch in double crochet so always insert hook in 2nd stitch and begin the row.
