Today, I will be showing you how to half double crochet (a.k.a. hdc).  I will be giving you step by step instructions so that you can be successful.

The half double crochet stitch is one of my favorite stitches.  Maybe it's because it works up so quick or maybe because it's the stitch I use to create so many things.  Whatever the reason may be, I just really enjoy it!  So, let's get started!!!

You will need:

Hook- size H (5.0 mm) or I (5.5 mm)

Yarn- Worsted (4)

*The hook size and yarn weight are just my recommendations.  You can use whatever size and weight you feel comfortable with.

Once you have gathered your materials, Chain 16 and then go up to the top of this post and click on the video.

I hope you enjoy it!
