Hello! Welcome to another crochet beginner series video!
Today's crochet stitch we are going to be learning is how to crochet the double crochet stitch, abbreviated DC.
As you start your crochet journey and start experimenting with beginner-friendly named patterns, you will notice the double crochet stitch being in most of them. And that reason is because it is one of the important basic stitches you need to know and have under your crochet belt.
Double crochet refers to yarn over the working the yarn around your hook once, which then you followed by inserting the hook through a stitch, yarn over your hook once again, pull through the stitch which now you should have 3 loops on your hook, yarn over pull through two loops, yarn over and pull through the last two loops on your hook.
That is the double crochet stitch and really is much simpler once you try it and keep practicing. When working a crochet stitch in rows, you always want to match the height of your stitch when you turn your work. In this case for the double crochet stitch, instead of chaining 1 as we did for the single crochet stitch, you will chain 3.
