    Exclamation Double Crochet Tutorial

    I have done this tutorial with different colored yarns in sequence to make the stitches. I will be referring to each color in the pictures. I have tried to do this taking less pictures. So if you do not understand, please ask. In all pictures I will be referring to, I will go from top to bottom.

    Double Crochet Tutorial

    This tutorial will be done making 5 stitches.

    Top Yellow - Make a slip knot and chain 7.

    I have blackened the 4th chain from the hook. This is where you will insert your hook to make your double crochet. The 3 chains between the blackened one and the hook count as your first double crochet.

    Bottom Purple - Yarn over and insert hook into the 4th chain from the hook.

    In this next picture I have marked every other stitch. Starting on the right at the arrow, this is the top of the chain 3 which counts as your first double crochet.

    Chain 3 and turn.

    This is after turning, I have marked the 2nd stitch and the last stitch (Top of the beginning chain 3) in the row. Your chain 3 counts as the 1st double crochet so you do not work into the first double crochet but the 2nd one.

    Work 4 double crochets across the row.

    This next picture is a close up of the top of the chain 3. Remember to pick up both loops of the stitch.

    This next picture is of 2 rows of double crochet completed.

    Top White - 2 rows of 5 stitches of double crochet completed.

    Bottom Yellow - I have blackened the stitches so you can see them. This is called the ‘post’ of the double crochet stitch.

    Starting on the right, chain 3 (which counts as your 1st double crochet), the 3rd double crochet and the last double crochet are marked.
