Crochet Video Tutorial: How to do the Half Double Crochet (HDC)



Learn how to do the Half Double Crochet (HDC) using the video at the link below. It's the second shortest stitch. Its height is taller than a Single Crochet and shorter than the Double Crochet. 

How to do the Half Double Crochet:
Wrap yarn around hook 1 time. Insert hook, YO and pull through all 3 loops.

You don't have to worry about turning chains with any HDC pattern.

On this video I chained 10. You will be doing 8 HDC's. That's because you are skipping 2 chains at the beginning of Row 1.

Gauge for 20 HDC with an I hook is 67 inches
Instructions:
Hook Size: I

Row 1: Go into the 3rd chain from the hook and do 1hdc. Do 1hdc in each stitch across the row
(8 hdc)

Row 2: chain 2 ( Doesn't count as the first hdc) turn. Do 1 hdc in each stitch across the row. (8 hdc)
