The HDC Stitch Tutorial
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 made a Hdc!

When you get to the end of the row remember to chain 1, turn 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!
