Learn how to do a half double crochet stitch!
This beginner-friendly half double crochet (sometimes abbreviated as HDC) stitch video is perfect for those who want a step by step tutorial. The best thing about videos is that they can be paused to try the stitch over & over until it’s just right!
Use the HDC stitch for blankets, scarfs & more!
The HDC stitch is probably one of my favorites to use for patterns! (a close second is a single crochet!) I’ve used it in this one hour cowl and the all-time coziest blanket ever the HDC chunky blanket! After you get the hang of this stitch, please check out these patterns and make one!
The yarn that’s perfect to use for the half double crochet stitch!
For this tutorial, I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, but you can use ANY yarn to achieve a hdc stitch. As long as you use a crochet hook that corresponds to the yarn you have (you’ll usually find that information on the yarn label) you are golden.
