As I said in the last crochet tutorial, half double crochet is my favorite stitch, but double crochet runs a close second. It's a perfect stitch for when you want something super soft but don't mind having a relatively loose weave, and it's the foundation for many of the other "complex" stitches and patterns.
Today's tutorial assumes you already know how to make a slip knot, chain, and yarn over. If you haven't learned those techniques yet, please go to the first tutorial in this series first, where you will learn those as well as the single crochet stitch. You may also want to check out the half double lesson before continuing with this one.
If you have those stitches down, let's move on to double crochet.
