I thought I would bring it back to the basics for this post and give a step by step tutorial on how to do the Half Double Crochet Stitch. Sometimes in crochet patterns you will see it abbreviated using the letters “HDC“. So if you ever wondered what does HDC stand for well now you know!
I will be using this stitch in an upcoming pattern that is yet to be released and figured it would be a nice refresher. Enjoy!
Edited to add that the new pattern can be found HERE for the “Mix it up” Scarf!
HOW TO HALF DOUBLE CROCHET
- I used Lion Brand Woolspun Bulky Size 5 in Oxford Grey (but any size or brand will work)
- Crochet Hook Size L. I used the Crochet Dude Aluminum Crochet Hook-Size L /8mm(use the hook that corresponds with the yarn you choose to use)
Step 1: Chain any number (I used 11 for this tutorial)
Step 2: Yarn over and Insert Hook into 2nd Chain from Hook
Step 3: Yarn over again and pull back through 2nd Chain (3 loops on hook)
Step 4: Yarn over again and pull through all 3 loops on hook
Step 5: Repeat from Step 2 (do not work into the 2nd chain from hook from here on out go to the next chain instead)
YOU DID IT!! 🙂
When you get to the end of the row remember to chain 1, rurn and repeat from step 2 on. I hope you had fun learning how to half double crochet and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
