How to Double Crochet

Share the love!

Crochet can be super fun. I find that I like to do it while watching t.v. or chatting with others.  I find it a little bit of a mindless activity.  There is a little bit of counting that goes on, but really it’s kind of simple work that can be done wherever, whenever.

The Double Crochet is a great stitch.  It’s taller than the single crochet.
