How to Crochet – Double Crochet Stitch + Bonus Headband – For Beginners

Howdy and hello!

Today’s lesson shows you how to do a double crochet stitch! This is one of the most commonly-used crochet stitches and it’s essential you know how to do this stitch if you want to be a crocheter.

It’s really similar to the half double crochet that we learned in the previous lesson, with just a wee bit of a difference. You’ll see what I mean.

If you stick with me through the video and follow along, you’ll have an adorable little headband you can wear. 🙂 Or give it away as a gift and smile with satisfaction that YOU made it all by your wittle self!

What You’ll Need:

-A US size H hook (or similar… a G or I will work too)
-Worsted Weight yarn (here is the link for this particular yarn which I carry in my shop…
… if you don’t see it listed there, it has sold out… my colors sell quickly and I have a fast-turning inventory so if you see anything you must have, you have to grab it quickly.)
-A darning needle for the final bit of the project – these are really cheap and come in handy ALL the time when crocheting or knitting, so it’s great to have one on hand.
-Scissors, of course, to cut your lil’ tails.

Okay, go ahead and watch through and get the feel for the double crochet stitch… I’m assuming you’ve watched my first video on how to work a slip knot and a chain, but if not and you need help with those, you can watch that video here.

    An elderly neighbor taught me to knit when I was 7 or 8. My mom was annoyed. She said, “I could have taught you to knit!” I’m sure it gave the lady pleasure to spend the time, though, as we sat on the porch and I tried to learn to make a slipper.
