The extended single crochet stitch (also called double single crochet or an Elmore stitch) is a taller and looser version of the regular single crochet stitch. Basically, you can create an extended stitch by adding an extra "yarn over, pull through loop" step to any regular stitch. For example, with the single crochet, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, and pull through loop (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through one loop, yarn over, pull through both loops.
