How To Do A Half Double Crochet | Crafty Crochet Thursday

As promised, here is how to do a half double crochet. I’ll admit that I didn’t get the best pictures this time, but we’ll work with it. 😉

First start (as always) by chaining 15:

Yarn over:

While the yarn is over your hook push your hook through the second chain from the hook, and yarn over again. It should look something like this:
Yarn over again

Pull the yarn through:
Pull through

Yarn over once more:
Yarn over 2

Now pull through all 3 of the loops on your hook:

You’ve completed 1 Half double crochet!

Do another one and half double crochet in all of the chains. This is what 2 half double crochets look like:

Once you’ve gotten to the end of the row, chain 2, and flip the piece over:

When I did the post on how to do a single crochet, I told you to insert your hook into the 2 loops joined together at the top. We’ll call them V’s. Here I flipped the piece to the side so you can see what I was talking about:

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, insert your hook into the V that the green arrow is pointing to:

Half double crochet to the end of the row. The pink arrow is pointing to the last V you should be inserting your hook into:

Here is the finished 2 rows of half double crochet:
