Hey Dearies! We will be doing the double crochet square! This stitch is another stitch that is used very commonly used in most if not all projects. In fact, I use it quite a lot in my towel topper pattern.
This stitch is different from the other stitches we have learns, such as single and half-double crochet, instead, this stitch is longer, which can make your project look more completed or more farther along that it would with the other stitches.
What I used:
- 5.0 mm hook
- This is the most commonly used hook size for beginners, but you can use whatever size that you would like.
- Medium Size Yarn
- I used the ‘Red Heart Super Saver’ in the color Perfect Pink.
- You can used any type of size yarn, but make sure that you use the right hooks that go with the size.
- Sewing Needle
Note: You can chain any amount of chains you want, but make sure to add an addional 3 chains. For example, I want there to be 25 stitches, so I will chain 28, instead.
Make a slip knot and chain 28 chains.
Row 1: From the 3rd chain, from your hook and double crochet into the next stitch. (Remember, the chain that is already on your hook does not count!) (25)
Row 2: Turn and chain 3. Double crochet in the next stitch and across. (25)
Repeat Row 2 until you have reached the length you desire. I crocheted up until row 20. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
There you have it! The more rows you make, the more practice you gain from this! There are tons of projects you can try out with using the double crochet!
