Melu Crochet Guide: Extended Double Crochet/ Extended Single Crochet (ExDc/ExSc)

This is a longer stitch than double crochet, useful when stepping up a level but keeping the stitch quite tight. This is a UK extended double, which is the same as a US extended single.

ExDc/ExSc: Insert the hook into indicated stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through first loop on hook (2 loops left on hook). Yarn over,  pull through both loops on hook.

Iโ€™d love to see your creations! Donโ€™t forget to add #melucrochet when you post your photos ๐Ÿ™‚
