how to – half double crochet | hdc

The half double crochet [abbreviated hdc] is half tall compared to the double crochet as it eliminates one step from the double crochet stitch.

Unless otherwise stated in the pattern, skip the two first chains from your hook and insert your hook in the third chain from the hook.

And to work the rows, the turning chain should counts as a stitch [check your pattern again].

Further, go to Annie’s Craft Store for very detailed explanations, clear illustrations [as shown below] and a video.
