Makes it a great day to sit down and write a post! The fire is going and I have my tea in hand. I'm prepared!
Today I'm introducing the double crochet in my video tutorials. The double crochet is just about the next simple crochet stitch you can learn. In my mind there's one in between the single crochet and double crochet called the half double crochet, but I neglected to make a video for that stitch. So, you'll get it another day!
The double crochet is often abbreviated as 'dc' which makes it pretty simple to identify. It's a taller stitch than the single crochet. I find the double crochet nice, because it allows you to work vertically faster than you would with the single crochet. You can also combine the double crochet with the single (and other simple stitches not introduced yet) to make some pretty awesome patterns and textures!
