Crochet Tutorial: Linked Double Crochet


Linked Double Crochet The linked double crochet is one of my favourite
stitches, it’s as tall as the double crochet but it doesn’t leave gaps between the stitches. To work a linked double crochet insert your
hook into the horizontal bar in the middle of the previous stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through two loops on the hook, yarn over and pull trough
the two loops on the hook. One linked double crochet is done. Insert your hook into the horizontal bar in
the middle of the previous stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next stitch,
yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over pull trough two, yarn over and pull
trough both loops on the hook. Continue until the end of the row. When reaching the end of the row,
chain two and turn your work. Another thing I love about this stitch is
that the first stitch isn’t worked into a chain or into the second stitch
of the previous row. The first linked double crochet is worked into the first stitch. To start a new row of linked double crochets
insert your hook into the second chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop, Insert your hook into
the first stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over,
pull trough 2 loops, yarn over and pull trough the 2 loops on the hook. Insert your hook into the horizontal bar in
the middle of the previous stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook into
the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over pull trough two, yarn over and pull
trough both loops on the hook. Continue until the end of the row. The fabric resulting from this stitch is not as
loose as one worked with double crochets, but still, it’s soft and not as stiff or
bulky as one worked with single crochets. The fabric has no gaps or holes
and works up quickly, and the horizontal bar along the rows
gives the fabric extra texture and detail. All in all a great stitch to have in
your arsenal!=) Thank you for watching! If you want to see more
