Double Stitch (DS)
The Double Stitch is one of those stitches where the definition of the stitch is only showing on one side. I would therefore recommend only using it in projects worked in the round. At the same time I find the beauty of it comes out best in better yarns. Often the characteristics are too indistinct in thinner yarns.
Push your hook through the “V”. Place your yarn around your hook andpull back through the “V” – you now have two loops on the hook.
