Double crochet is one of the most common ways to crochet. As soon as you learn how to make it (and it won’t take too much time) you’ll be able to use it making sweaters, shawls, interior décor and lots of other interesting projects.

Learn The Basis

1. Learn the terms. Every hobby has its own language and the crocheting is not an exception. Having learnt a couple of terms it will be easier for you to understand the steps you need to follow to make a double crochet.

2. Get several types of crotchets at hand. Crotchets may be of different size and it depends on the size of the loops. If you work according to a scheme, there must be a recommendation on what size crotchet to use. If you just practice, making the double crotchet choose the size that is convenient to you, so you’ll be able to make loops big enough to see the double crochet forming.

3. Use the yarn that is easy to work with. The cotton yarn is easy to use because the loops you’re making are visible. That’s why you want to use the cotton yarn to practice making the double crochet.

American Version (Double Crochet)

1. Make the base chain. Make a row of loops that will form the base before knitting the double crochet. Make a slipknot and put it on the crotchet.

2. Make a turning loop. The loops is required to raise the yarn to begin the next row.

3. Make a double crochet. It is twice taller than the single crochet. Its height is like that because you need to make three chain stitches for the turning loop.
