Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

Extended Double Crochet Stitch

>Last week I showed you the extended single crochet, so I thought the next step would naturally be the extended double crochet.  When worked it is taller than a double crochet but not as tall as a treble crochet.

EXTENDED DOUBLE CROCHET (EDC)

Here are the steps:

YO,
Insert hook into desired stitch,
pull yarn through (there will be 3 loops on hook)
yo 
pull through one loop only

this is what you will have left on your hook

yo
pull through 2 loops

this is what you should have left now

yo pull through last 2 loops (that will leave you with one remaining loop – stitch is complete)

completed stitch
Here is a picture of how it compares to a treble crochet & a double crochet.
L to R – treble, extended double, double crochet
