Double Treble Crochet

Right about now you might be thinking Hey if I can make a tall stitch by wrapping the yarn once and dropping off loops two at a time, and I can make an even taller one by wrapping the yarn twice and dropping the lopps off two at a time, what happens if I wrap the yarn three or even four times? Will the stitches get taller and taller and taller? The answer is yes, and in fact, someone else already thought of this. That's how she or he invented the doulbe treble and triple treble crochet stitches, which are kind of ridiculously tall and not all that frequently used, but worth knowing anyway.
For the double treble crochet, you start with a turning chain of 5 stitches. Put 3 wraps of yarn on your hook. If you're working into a base chain insert your hook into the 6th chain from the hook; if you're working into a row of stitches, skip the stitch at the base of the chain and insert the hook into the next stitch. Now grab a strand of yarn with your hook and pull it through. You have 5 loops on the hook. Hook the yarn and pull it through two of those loops. Then keep on winding yarn around your hook and pulling it through two loops at a time until you have only one loop left on the hook. Double treble crochet stitch made!

LOL everything ... the single crochet is the easiest thing but I'm plodding through everything else (which so far isn't much so of course I'm just hollering for nothing I guess! lol )

Have you made a practice swatch with the single crochet? Are your chain stitches even? Try practicing with just the single crochet for a few rows, and then post a pic, the double crochet is almost the same as single only you make a yarn over (wrap the yarn around the hook once) then insert into the next stitch, wrap it again, pull through two loops, then wrap and pull through the last two loops, leaving one loop on the hook....make sense? The single and double are basically the main stitches for alot of patterns. Once you get the hang of those the rest come easy. So I would just practice on those for know.

Hey do you think I should make a Stitch of the Day post on knitting too?? Oh and did you ever get my email? I sent it to your yahoo.
