The Foundation Double Crochet Stitch is great for most projects. This stitch allows for a stretchy edge, working great for most headbands, necklines, sweaters anything really! The Foundation Double Crochet is pretty simple, if you can double crochet then you can Foundation Double Crochet too!
Starting with a Foundation Double Crochet
Step 1 - Ch3, YO, Insert your hook into the 3rd Ch from the hook, YO, Pull Through, (3 loops should be on your hook) YO, Pull through one loop, YO, Pull through two loops, YO pull through the last two loops on your hook.
Step 2 - YO, insert your hook into the bottom of the previous double crochet, YO, Pull Through, (3 loops should be on your hook) YO, Pull through one loop, YO, Pull through two loops, YO pull through the last two loops on your hook.
Repeat Step 2 until you reach your desired number of stitches.
Adding with a Foundation Double Crochet
Sometimes when working a pattern a certain number of stitches is needed to add (halfway through, at the end, wherever) It’s actually quite simple to do this using a Foundation Double Crochet. The only difference when working a Foundation Double Crochet this way, is instead of beginning with a chain 3, you will skip to step 2 and working into the same stitch as your last double crochet.

Shawls and scarves have recently made their way into my heart. These accessories were once something I despised making and wearing, but as I’ve grown as a designer (and moved to a colder climate) I find that I just can’t get enough of them!

I was so happy with the result and couldn’t wait to share it with my small following at the time. I quickly took pictures on my white fur rug (we were all doing that back then, right?) posted the pattern to Etsy and…nothing.
