Double Crochet Foundation Stitch (DCFS) Crochet Pattern and Video tutorial

This is the pattern and tutorial of the Double Crochet Foundation Stitch, if you’d like to learn how to do the Single Crochet Foundation stitch then you can do that here.

The Foundation stitches in crochet can be a bit scary to try to use, but I assure it that it can save you so much time and also allows you to start crocheting out from a fixed point from anywhere on your project.

Use them to create handles on bags or get into free form crochet!

Are you one of those people who hand trouble when making an afghan, that the beginning chain is tighter on the afghan than the rest of your stitches? Well the foundation stitches prevent that from happening.

ch = Chain

sl st = Slip Stitch

DC = Double Crochet

beg = beginning

YO = Yarn over

Repeat what’s in between *






To Begin:

Ch 3, YO and insert your hook into the first chain you made and pull up a loop.

YO and only pull through the first loop. *This will create the chain portion of our stitch. This is also the stitch you will use to make your next DCFS.

Let’s continue…

YO and pull through 2 loops then YO and pull through 2 loops to complete the DC.

YO and insert your hook into the chain portion of the previous stitch that I mentioned before. Here’s a picture that can help you find it.

Pull up a loop and YO and pull through only 1 loop on your hook. *

Repeat what’s in between *
