Tutorial: Double Crochet (dc)

A double crochet (dc) stitch is twice as tall as a single crochet. It’s a beginner stitch and very important to learn. It’s a wonderful stitch to use when you want to add height quickly to a project.

Our bamboo infinity scarf (pictured) is made entirely of dc stitches, our cowl hat uses a combination of stitches which includes the dc, and the dc is also used at the end of our sunglasses case to create the cinch.
