How To Do Wrap Double Crochet Stitch

Good morning crochet lovers!  Today I am sharing my tutorial on how to do  wrap double crochet stitch.  The wrap double crochet stitch is an easy stitch to create.  For this tutorial you must have knowledge on how to do double crochet stitch.  So here is a DOUBLE CROCHET TUTORIAL if you need to brush up on how to do this basic stitch.

Onto the wrap double crochet stitch.  This unique stitch is created using three double crochets.  When counting stitches across your work this stitch does count as three double crochets. It is a very versatile stitch, which you can use in a multiple ways.

The wrap double crochet abbreviation I use in my patterns is wdc.

This tutorial uses the wdc stitch on every row for practice.  However you could alternate rows of wdc with rows of ie. sc, hdc, dc or even tr.  Your possibilities are endless!

The wdc gives a lacy appearance that is more solid of a fabric then the regular double crochet + chain 1 stitch pattern.  So once you have mastered this stitch get creative with combining with different stitches.

Now grab your favorite hook and yarn and lets get started!  My FAVORITES come from Furls Crochet.  I can not say enough good things about their products, time frame for delivery and customer service.
