Extended Double Crochet

Extended Double Crochet

[Extended stitches are just that, they add one additional stitch of height. And when completed, they look like there is a row of single crochet followed by a double crochet stitch. as comparison here's a double crochet and extended double crochet stitch together.]

[See the row of what looks like single crochet at the bottom of each extended double crochet stitch? That's what we're achieving in this stitch.]

1. Chain 10 

2. Yarn over, insert hook in third chain from hook, pull up a loop.

3. Yarn over, pull through first loop. (This forms the extended stitch)

4. Yarn over, pull through next two loops.

5. Yarn over, pull through final two loops.

6. Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, pull up a loop.

7. Repeat steps 3 through 5.

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until end of row. Chain 3, turn to crochet next row.
