Extended stitches: double single crochet

To make a double single crochet stitch: insert hook and draw a loop up (you will have two loops on your hook). Yarn over and draw through one loop. (Still two loops on hook.) Yarn over again and draw through both loops.

This stitch is abbreviated as dsc.

Extended stitches can be used to create smoother edges when transitioning between the more basic stitches.

Notice the size difference between the single crochet (red) and the double single crochet.
