GAUGE
10 sts and 6 rows = 4” in dc

NOTES

  • The ch 3 at the beg of each row will count as the first dc. This means that the next dc you make should be placed in the 2nd st of the row

  • Ch 3 can be substituted with a CSDS (see OPTIONAL SPECIAL STITCHES)

  • Some design features, such as pockets and decorative post stitches at the hem are optional.

STITCH GUIDE

Ch(s) – Chain(s), sc – single crochet, dc – double crochet, Rnd(s) – Round(s), sl st – slip stitch, sp(s) – space(s), st(s) – stitch(es), blo – back loop only

SPECIAL STITCHES

Fdc- Foundation Double Crochet
Chain 2 (does not count as a st), yarn over (YO) and insert hook in 2nd chain from hook, YO and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop creating a chain st, (this is an important step but easy to forget), YO again and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining), YO again and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes the first fdc; to stitch the next fdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the chain made in the first fdc and repeat from to desired length.

Exdc- Extended Double Crochet
Yarn over (YO), insert hook in st, YO and pull through st (3 loops on hook), YO and draw through one loop, YO and draw through two loops 2x.Fp-exdc- Front Post Extended Double Crochet
Same as exdc except instead of crocheting in the normal space you insert hook under post in previous round (from front to back)

Bp-exdc- Back Post Extended Double Crochet
Same as exdc except instead of crocheting in the normal space you insert hook under post in previous round (from back to front)

OPTIONAL SPECIAL STITCHES

CSDC- Chainless Starting Double Crochet
If working in rows, turn work.  If working in rounds spin hook completely around, making a twist in the loop.  Pull up a loop to the height of a normal dc.  Yarn over (YO) with the loop so that the hook is behind the loop.  Insert the hook into the first st of row.  Complete a normal dc (YO and draw through st (3 loops on hook), YO and draw through first two loops on hook.  YO and draw through last two loops on hook).

SDC- Standing Double Crochet
Begin with slip knot on hook, Yarn over (YO), insert hook in stitch, and work like a normal dc (YO, draw through first two loops, YO, draw through last two loops).
