Single crochet, sc (US) / Double crochet , dc (UK)

In this DROPS video we show you how a double crochet (dc). In the first row, we show how to work the dc in a ch-stitch. On the second row we work in both loops. The dc is usually worked under both loops from a previous row, but you can also work in the front or back loop only, which will give a stripy/textured look.

Work a dc as follows: Insert the hook in stitch. Wind the yarn around the hook and pull it through, leaving two loops on your hook. Wind the yarn around the hook again and pull it through both loops.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

Jeg skal til at hækle La Mer. I 1. række skal man i gentagelsen " hækle 5 luftmasker, springe 6 luftmasker over og hækle en fastmaske i den næste. Hvordan kan det hænge sammen, at man skal springe flere over end der er i buen?

Przecież to jest półsłupek! I wszędzie na Waszym portalu ten sam błąd - nie wiecie, że w języku polskim to nie jest żadne oczko ścisłe...! Niesamowite...

Hej Kari-Mette, er det en DROPS opskrift, i så fald kan du vælge norsk udgave ved at klikke på sprog inde på selve opskriften på nettet. God fornøjelse!

Hi I am trying to follow a drops chart which says to double crochet AROUND the stitch below rather than IN the stitch below and cannot find an explanation of what this means!

DROPS Design 04.04.2015 - 10:10:

Dear Mrs Wylie, this dc may have to be worked around the chain on previous row, please check in diagram and remember you can ask your question on the blog to this pattern so that it can be checked on the pattern you are working on. Happy crocheting!

Marny CA 10.12.2013 - 13:01:

On sc (US) - instead of pulling through both loops, what is it when it is: yo pull through 1st, yo pull through 2nd ??

DROPS Design 17.10.2014 - 15:41:

Dear Marny, you will get an "extended" sc. Happy crocheting!
