Learn the Half Double Crochet Stitch

Learn the half double crochet stitch

Last in my series of crochet basics is the half double crochet stitch. I like this stitch a lot! It gives a little more height than a single crochet, which means you will finish your project faster, but it leaves smaller holes than the double crochet, which makes it more appropriate for clothing that you don’t intend to layer. Anyhow, continue below for the video tutorial!

Something important, or at least interesting to know about the half double crochet stitch is that it’s top does not sit squarely over its post. When you complete the stitch, or when you are looking at the right side of a row, the top of each stitch sits slightly to the right of its post. When you turn your work and are looking at the wrong side of a row, the top of each stitch sits a little to the left of its post. This can be important in helping you figure out where the top of the first and last stitch in the row or round are when you are trying to stitch into them for the next row or round.
