A double crochet stitch is a basic crochet stitch that makes a tall and open fabric.
To do it, yarn over, insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over again, pull up a loop, yarn over once more, and then pull through two loops on the hook.
Finally, yarn over again and pull through the remaining two loops. It creates a slightly taller stitch compared to a single crochet.

Double Crochet Stitch - Step-by-Step
Yarn over (wrap the yarn over the crochet hook from back to front).
Insert the crochet hook into the desired stitch or space in the previous row.
Yarn over again and pull up a loop through the stitch or space you inserted the hook into. You now have three loops on the hook.
Yarn over again and pull through the first two loops on the hook. Now, you have two loops left on the hook.
Yarn over one more time and pull through the remaining two loops on the hook. This completes the double crochet stitch.
Repeat steps 1-5 for each double crochet stitch across the row.
