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:
Insert hook into desired stitch,
pull yarn through (there will be 3 loops on hook)
pull through one loop only
this is what you will have left on your hook
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)
Here is a picture of how it compares to a treble crochet & a double crochet.
L to R – treble, extended double, double crochet
