Double crochet (dc)

(The video is texted in English (US-terms), so remember to turn those on.)

Here I will show you how to learn to crochet double crochet stitches (dc).

Double crochet stitches are a slightly higher stitch, where you crochet by yarning over, insert the hook into the stitch and take the yarn back (= 3 loops on the hook). Then you yarn over, guide the yarn on the hook through the first two loops. Yarn over, and through the last two loops. That is a Double Crochet stitch (dc).

If you are interested in the “Filet Crochet”, this stitch is the basic stitch of this. You can make the most beautiful patterns with it, and I ahve totally fallen for all the nice patterns! Filet Crochet is crocheting with holes. The holes appear, because you make a chain and skip one stitch, and then Double Crochet. I have made a few free crochet patterns, that has become very popular, and that is these:

Stitches, that is good to learn after this

It is pretty similar to the half double crochet. The half double crochet stitch is kind of a “lazy” version of this, and is not as tall, as this double crochet.

Crochet Style: Yanker, Rider or a Lifter (the golden loop)

Video guide: The Golden Loop

Are you working on a pattern and you can not quite get the crochet height right? I have made this video, which describes “The Golden Loop”. That loop is the one that determines how high your stitches will be.

When you need to hit the specified width, you can go in and adjust with the size of your crochet hook. If you have too few stitches on the 10 cm, go down in crochet hook size. If you have too many stitches, go up in size. Depending on whether there is much or little in the difference, I will probably start with just half a millimeter.
