Crochet for Knitters – Double Crochet

The double crochet stitch is, in my experience, the most commonly used stitch in crochet.

The other videos in this series can be found here. More Crochet for Knitters videos in the weeks to come!

Information on things you’ll see in this video:

The sweater on the mannequin is the Saroyan Scarf, designed by Liz Abinante. Free pattern and video tutorial.

The sweater I’m wearing is the Featherweight Cardigan. I knit mine using Malabrigo Lace yarn.

The yarn I’m using for demonstration is Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick, and the size N metal crochet hook is Susan Bates.

  1. Thank you so much for all your e-mail videos. I have purchased and made a lot of your patterns, socks, hats, saroyan scarf etc. I am now enjoying the crochet videos and can’t wait to start a granny square.
    Thank you again.

  2. I am trying to learn to crochet and find your videos very good. However, I believe there is a difference between English and American terminology. eg your single crochet is actually double crochet for us and double crochet is treble crochet. Is this correct? Why isn’t there a universal measure for both knitting and crochet?

  3. Hi Mary – yes, the crochet terms are different between English and American. Here is a chart that spells it out:

    I use American terms.
