In this photo, Sigoni Macaroni is explaining how you should be counting your crochet stitches and rows using a swatch of double crochet. Pictured is a yarn swatch consisting of five rows of double crochet stitches. There are 14 stitches in each row. The photo is explaining that the turning chain 3 at the beginning of the row counts as a stitch. There are also stitch markers showing what the front and back of a double crochet stitch looks like.
