Tutorial: Foundation Double Crochet (fdc) June 2016 // by knotions// 2 Comments Chain 3 (ch 3) Yarn over (yo) and insert hook in third chain from hook. Pull up a loop. You’ll now have 3 loops on your hook. Yo again and pull through just the first loop. Now you made your first chain. Make a double crochet (yo, pull through 2 loops (lps), (2 lps rem on hook)… yo and pull through 2 rem lps). 1 dc and 1 ch made. Now, repeat these below steps until you have enough stitches: Yo and insert hook into the chain you just made in that last stitch. It will be challenging to do at first but we promise it’s there! Pull through a loop just through the first loop. One more chain made. You’ll have 3 more lps on your hook. Now, work a regular dc. 2 dc’s and 2 ch’s made. Foundation double crochet ftw! And take a look at foundation double crochet after a few rounds… A look at the bottom edge. Here’s after a few rows crocheted after the foundation double crochets are done.
