Stitch of the Week: Double Crochet

It's time for another round of Stitch of the Week!  This week, I am focusing on another basic crochet stitch, double crochet.  This stitch is featured in Volume 4 of the Vogue Stitchionary.  

Sample Info
Hook:  H
Yarn:  Red Heart SuperSaver
Beginning Chain: 14 
Gauge:  4.5 stitches = 1 inch, 2 rows = 1 inch

Double Crochet is another basic stitch, but it is very versatile. It can be used in a variety of projects.

Probably my favorite project using double crochet is the star baby blanket.  I have made four of these already, in different colors, and can't wait until I get to make another.

Here is a video 
.The Craft Yarn Council has a great picture tutorial.

What have you made with double crochet?
