Double crochet

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 may 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.
