Half Double Crochet Stitch
The basic half double crochet stitch is very similar to the double crochet stitch. When using the half double, you start out just as you would with the double crochet but after doing your first yarn over and drawing through the loops from your previous row, you do another yarn over and draw through all remaing loops on your hook all at once. Therefore, the half double works up much quicker than the regular double crochet stitch. See the instructions below for complete details on how to complete this stitch and how to work it into rows.
Materials: Any weight yarn with the appropriate size crochet hook. Our sample was made using worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook.
You can work any number of stitches but add two to the base chain.
