Learn to Crochet -- Half Double Crochet Stitch Video Tutorial

Here is another Video Tutorial to add to the Library -- this time on the Half Double Crochet (hdc) Stitch. This stitch is a little taller than the single crochet stitch, but still makes a nice firm fabric. It can be used on its own, stitching through both loops or just the front or back loops. It is very often used in combination with other stitches to make patterns like scallops since it is a nice transition between single and double crochet.

Watch the video and see how easy it is...

If you would like to practice this stitch while making something useful, pick up a skein of Red Heart worsted weight yarn in a color that brings out your beautiful eyes. Start with a chain of about 25 or 30 stitches, then work every row in half double crochet until the piece is about 60 inches long. Weave in the ends and wear it around your neck on the next chilly morning. I bet you'll get one or two compliments from friends!
