Double crochet

January 1, 2013

Before inserting your hook in the next stitch, yarn over.

Now insert your hook into the stitch.

Yarn over again and pull through.

You now have 3 loops on your hook.

Yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops.

There should be 2 loops left on the hook.

Yarn over and draw through the remaining loops.


I haven’t seen many double crochets in amigurumi, every now and then I’ll use them to try and make a taller stitch, but it’s usually on a flat piece. It’s a good crochet stitch to know anyway, since you’ll often see it in other crochet projects – such as a beanie’s, blankets, etc.
