How to Crochet a Double Crochet

Step 1) Start by chaining (ch) to your desired length.

Step 2) Wrap the yarn over the hook and insert it in the fourth chain back from the hook.

Step 3) Pull the yarn through the chain on the project and you should have three loops on your hook at this point.

Step 4) Wrap the yarn over and pull through the first two loops on your hook. Two loops will still be on the crochet hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook again and pull through the remaining two loops.
