Learn How To Create Double Crochet Loop Stitches
Learn how to create these Double Crochet Loop Stitches and add them to your skill set. Learning this technique will give you more options in the future, which makes our craft more fun and versatile. Which is ALWAYS a good thing.
Working with both Front and Back Loop Stitches, will leave a horizontal bar exposed on your crochet fabric, it will also make your project much more elastic and stretchy. In amigurumi, it can also change the entire shape of your project.
For the double crochet, I have chosen video tutorials, for both right and left handed crocheters. The videos have been created by New Stitch Of The Day, and are excellent. They have created one for each technique.
You can crochet in the Front and Back Loop only, in any crochet stitch. The same pattern, worked in different loops, looks totally different!
We have different tutorials for each of the following stitches and their abbreviations, in different posts on our web site.
