Start with a chain of at least 20 stitches. If you don't know how, follow our basic crochet guide.
Your crochet hook should be in the first loop, count two loops and insert the hook into the second loop of the chain (don't count the loop already on the hook).
Wrap the wool around your hook. Hold the needle so that the hook faces you and traps the wool. Pull this gently towards the loop on the needle.
Just before you get to the loop on your hook, twist the hook downwards so that it catches the wool on the needle, allowing you to slide the hook with ease through the loop on your needle. Only go through one loop.
You should now have two loops on the needle.
Wind the wool around the needle again and pull it through both loops on the needle.
Insert your hook into the very next chain and repeat Steps 2-5.
This is what a row of double crotchet looks like:
Some crochet books refer to this stitch as a double crochet, while others call it a single stitch. This is because of the different American and British interpretations.
