The treble crochet stitch is perhaps the most used stitch in crochet – thanks to the granny square no doubt. Known as the double crochet (DC) in North America, this stitch is the main stitch used in the granny square and often features in motif and circular crochet designs.
Last week, I finished production of the treble (double crochet – US) video tutorials. I have demonstrated the technique into a four chain ring – as it would be used in a granny square.
I have also started to load up closed captions for all my video tutorials – knitting and crochet. This helps for those who struggle with my broad Aussie accent and also allows for the translation of the captions into a number of different languages. If you want to read the subtitles in another language, simply click on the “Subtitles/CC” icon – second from left in bottom right hand corner of video. Click on drop down box and choose top option – “Translate captions”. A pop up box will appear in the center of the screen. You need to click on the drop down box down arrow, scroll to and select the language you want and click “OK”.
Popcorn stitch is one of those stitches that makes crochet so addictive. The amazing three dimensional possibilities of crochet can only be achieved by these techniques that literally make the stitches pop from the background.
I have just finished production of the video tutorial for how to make a crochet popcorn stitch. Now for the double crochet stitch and I will be ready to launch the Crochet Flower Ring pattern featured in a post last week.
The basic knitting tutorials are now on Youtube… now for the crochet tutorials.
The crochet chain video tutorial has now been produced and includes tips on how to hold the hook and a super slow motion run through the chain stitch.
The chain stitch is the perfect way for beginners to get the hang of holding the crochet hook and develop even tension. When I taught beginners crochet classes at the shop I would encourage students make at least 1 metre of chain stitches before trying other stitch types.
