Melu Crochet Guide: Double Crochet (dc)

The double crochet is a great starting point when learning to crochet. It is used when making blankets, clothes and amigurumi (toys) I use it in most of my patterns.

This is a UK double crochet, which is the same as a US single crochet, for a handy conversion chart, click here
