Once you have been crocheting for awhile you start to notice you have favorites. Favorite weight of yarn, favorite brand of yarn, favorite hook size, favorite hook style, and favorite stitch. One of my favorite stitches is the wrapped double crochet.
The chunkyness of the stitch. The lines. The ease. The way you can combine it with so many other stitches. I LOVE it. I constantly find myself adding it to so many patterns.
And it’s even better because all you need to know how to do is a chain, skip and a double crochet. It’s definitely one of the first texture stitches you should try!
Let’s get to stitchin!
This stitch can be achieved with any weight of yarn and it’s recommended hook.
The base chain is multiple of 3 plus 1.
For this tutorial we will be doing a base chain of 19. This will make 6 wrapped double stitches.
Skip 2 chains.
Double crochet in next 2 chains.
Wrapping around both double crochet, double crochet in the skipped chain.
Repeat until end of chain.
Chain 2 and turn.
Skip 1 stitch.
Double crochet in next 2 stitches.
Wrapping around both double crochet,double crochet in the skipped stitch.
Repeat across row.
Chain 2 and turn.
That’s it! So easy and so much fun!
There is so much you can do with this stitch.
You can do repeating rows.
You can do rows of plain titches in between.
You can do rows of other textured stitches in between.
