WHAT IS DOUBLE CROCHET? (Abbreviation: dc)

Double crochet is one of the most basic stitches to learn and very commonly used, either on its own or combined with other stitches. It’s worth practising double crochet, as the technique will prepare you for all the taller stitches. Used in the right hook/yarn combination, double crochet produces a dense fabric that’s perfect for many projects, especially toys and storage baskets which need a tougher, firmer casing.
