I’ve prepared a photo tutorial for the very handy stitch dc3tog, or “double crochet three together,” which I love to use in my patterns and I’m sure for those of you who don’t know it yet, you’ll become addicted too!!!!!
When I first encountered this stitch, I closed the book and put it away, but then tried it, and once I got the hang of it (immediately) became a bit addicted to it! I love the puffiness it creates, so use it, and it’s little sister dc2tog frequently!
I hope this tutorial is useful for you!
Step 1: Yarn over hook, insert hook into stitch and pull a loop through. Yarn over and pull through two loops on hook. (So far is is like a dc, but don’t pull through those last two loops on the hook)
So far, just like a dc…
Step 2: (2 loops on hook) yarn over, insert hook into SAME space, pull through a loop, yarn over and pull through two loops on hook. (3 loops left on hook)
here’s step 2 completed…
Step 3: (3 loops on hook) yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, pull through a loop, yarn over, pull through two loops on hook. (4 loops left on hook)
Step 4: (4 loops on hook) yarn over, pull through all four loops left on hook.
Fantastic! Great stuff! Have a practice and I’ll catch you all up tomorrow with my lace bunting tutorial!
