How to Double Crochet
Again, watch the video, but if you want to read a long, here are the written directions.
What you need:
Yarn: Try a big skein of Red Heart from Walmart – the cheap stuff is good for practice.
Hook: G or H
With the chain in front of you, put the yarn over the hook (2 loops), then put the hook through the second chain from the hook.
Yarn over and pull the yarn through the hole (3 loops).
Now yarn over again and pull the yarn through 2 loops – that will leave you with 2 loops.
Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops.
Most common appreciations:
