Picture of How to Double Crochet; the Tallest Stitch!

Important note: I crochet right handed, but if you follow the directions in the way that works for you you'll end up with beautiful double crochet!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

To double crochet you will need yarn and a crochet hook. Currently I'm making a mermaid blanket during this tutorial I'm using blanket yarn, and a 16 mm crochet hook.

Step 2: Loop Over the Hook

Start by looping over the hook.

Step 3: Dip Into the Next Stitch

Dip your hook underneath the next stitch. At this point in the stitch you should have three loops on your hook.

Step 4: Loop Over Once Again

Step 5: Loop Over Again and Pull Through

Loop over once more after this you should have only two loops left on your hook.

Step 8: Bring Over Your Final Loops

Step 9: In Conclusion

This is a hard stitch to learn so be patient, this is the tallest crochet stitch like I said at the beginning and it adds some nice bulk to a project when partnered with a thicker yarn and a big hook you can make progress super fast!

Good photos, but there are taller stitches - triple & even quadruple crochet which require more wraps before & during the stitch. Keep crocheting!

I think a triple crochet is taller. Nice pictures--if I didn't already know how, I could learn from this description.
