Larks Foot Crochet Stitch - Baby Afghan

Written by Teresa Richardson

Extended or Long Double Crochet - This is where you will work a double crochet several stitches below the row you are on. You will need to pull up on the stitch and allow for some additional yarn, so the stitch does not sag.

Multiple: 4
You will add 4 chains for each segment of the pattern stitch that you want to add to the width.

Example: If you want to make a baby afghan with a size I/5.5mm crochet hook, 4-ply yarn, you will chain 108. This will give you an estimated width of 34 inches.

Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook, DC in next DC, *CH 1, SK 1 CH, 1 DC in EA of next 3 CH. Continue across from * for width of pattern.

Teresa,
Just to let you know how helpful your site it, I''m currently purusing through for all hat patterns... our homemaker''s make and donate "comfort caps" to the Markey Cancer Center and I''m the only crocheter in the group! Even the flower patterns will be used to decorate some of the caps.%
