Step 1: Create a slip knot and chain 20

Step 2: Yarn over and insert your hook into the 4th chain from your hook. Yarn over, pull up a loop. You will have 3 loops on your hook.

Step 3: Yarn over, pull through 2 loops.

Step 4: Yarn over again and pull through the remaining 2 loops.

That is the double crochet stitch!

Yarn over and insert your hook into the next chain, yarn over and pull through.

You will have 3 loops on your hook.

Yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over pull through remaining two loops.

Continue double crocheting in each chain down the row.

Crocheting into the foundation chain is the toughest part as a beginner. Once you get a couple rows down it will become easier to grip your yarn.

Once you’ve reached the end of the row, you should have 17 double crochet stitches total (the 3 chains that you skipped at the beginning of the foundation chain counts as a double crochet).

When you reach the end, chain 3 and turn your work to face the back side of your first row.

Yarn over, insert your hook under both loops of the next stitch (not the base of the chain 3 – see photo above).

Yarn over, pull up a loop. You’ll have 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over, pull through 2 loops. Yarn over, pull through the last 2 loops.

Continue double crocheting in each stitch down the row.

Don’t forget about the last stitch! Because the chain 3 at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch, you’ll be crocheting into the top chain of the chain 3. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to find.

Count your stitches at the end of each row to make sure you’re on track.

Repeat Row 2 until you’re really confident in your double crochet skills!
