The abbreviation for the double crochet stitch is dc.

Step 1: 

Start with a chain.



Step 2: 

Yarn over, insert hook in the 5th chain from hook, yarn over again and pull up a loop.

You will have three loops on your hook.





Step 3: 

Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on hook. 

You will have two loops left on your hook.




Step 4:

Yarn over again and pull through the two remaining loops on hook.

Your double crochet stitch is complete.




This is how a row of double crochet stitches looks like.
