Double Crochet Stitch
When you crochet using the basic double crochet stitch, it takes a bit longer to complete each stitch than the half double stitch as it has an additional step but the completed stitch is a little bit taller than the half double. Once you get into the rhythm of this stitch, it too will move along quickly. The abbreviation for double crochet is dc.
Materials: Any weight yarn with the appropriate size crochet hook. Our sample was made using worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook.
You can work any number of stitches but add two to the base chain.
