I was playing with my yarn and hook again today. Check out this interesting stitch I came up with today, all by playing with the position of the hook and yarn.

Foundation Chain: any number +3 (which counts as first reverse double crochet stitch)

Step 1: Lay yarn on top of hook and hold it with your index finger from the hand that’s holding your hook.

Step 2: Insert hook in stitch

Step 3: Lay hook over yarn and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook)

Step 4: Lay yarn on top of hook and (draw through two loops on hook) twice

Compare reverse double crochet (red) with regular double crochet stitches (green).
