How to Do a Foundation Double Crochet (FDC)


The Foundation Double Crochet or FDC is a stitch I love to use when I need something with some extra give that a chain start won't have. It's a pretty basic stitch and goes fairly quickly once you get it. The nice thing is that it's a Chain AND the Double Crochet together!


Below is the How to in writing and I have included the YouTube Video I did as well.




Terms to Know

Ch(s): chain(s)

YO: Back Post Double Crochet

St(s): stitch(es)



Materials



Pattern: Chain two, YO, insert hook into very first chain made, pull up a loop (three loops on hook), YO, pull through one loop (three loops on hook), YO, pull through two loops, YO, pull through remaining two loops on hook. First complete. Continue this by: YO, insert hook into both sides of the BOTTOM of the previous stitch, pull up a loop (three loops on hook), YO, pull through one loop (three loops on hook), YO, pull through two loops, YO, pull through remaining two loops on hook. Continue until desired length (or amount of Double Crochets) are acquired.
