Hey Dearies! So, today, I wanted to show you how to make a half-double crochet square! I’ve already shown you how to make a single crochet square, but now I’m going to talk about how to make the half-double crochet!
The half-double crochet is like the single crochet, it looks like a tight stitch, but instead of just entering the stitch with your hook, you are crocheting almost like you would for a double crochet, but going through all the loops.
So, let’s start!
What I used:
- 5.0 mm hook
- This side hook is what normal beginners should use, but you can use any size hook.
- Medium Size Yarn
- I’m using ‘I Love This Yarn’ in the color Menthe, but any medium size yarn will work.
- If you are using a smaller or bigger hook, just make sure that the yarn you choose, will be able to work.
- Sewing Needle
- You’ll always need this item, not matter what the crochet project!
Note: For the half-double crochet stitch, chain the amount you would like to do, but make sure you add an extra 2 chains! The extra two chains will not be crocheted!
Make a slip knot and chain 27. ( As I said before, you can chain whatever size you want, but make sure to have 2 extra chains. Example: I want 25 stitches, but I added 2 extra chains, making it 27 chains in totally.
Row 1: Skip the first 2 chains (Do not count the chain that is already on your hook!) Half-double crochet into the next stitch and across. (25)
Row 2: Chain 2. Half-double crochet in the next stitch and across. (25)
Repeat Row 2 until you have reached the number of rows you want to make, or keep going for more practice! I stopped at row 30
Once you are on your last row, fasten off and weave in any of your ends!
There you have it! Another fun stitch to practice and learn how to do! This stitch is also a very common stitch to be used in projects. I think it looks good for hats or blankets, especially!
