Have you ever heard of extended crochet stitches?? In my search for some new stitch combinations for a new design I came across these type of stitches.
I absolutely loved them from the first time I tried them out. And since I loved them so much I just had to share them with you.
This post will concentrate on the extended double crochet stitch. I love the look of this stitch and the ease at which it moves across a crochet hook.
I also love that the height of the stitch is slightly taller than a regular double crochet. If you want a slightly taller stitch but don’t really like working a treble crochet stitch then this is the perfect substitute.
This stitch also doesn’t give you those gaps that normally form when taller crochet stitches are worked.
This stitch can be used in so many different crochet projects. Use the extended double crochet stitch in blankets, sweaters or shawls.
Follow the steps below to learn how to make the extended double crochet stitch.
