Herringbone Half Double Crochet - Crochet Tutorial with Photos and Video by Nicki's Homemade Crafts

As I am still working on making new hat creations and writing down patterns and publishing them, I remembered a stitch I have not done in a long time: the Herringbone Half Double Crochet (Hbhdc).

It is not exactly the same or even similar to a half double crochet, but because of its height it resembles a similarity to a half double crochet.
I hope for my next crocheted hat I will use this stitch and publish a pattern for it. It is very pretty and versatile.

 

Now, let me teach you how to do this stitch. First I will teach you the stitch using pictures and then you will find a quick video for better visualization of this stitch. Let me know in the comments whether you liked this stitch and what you will use this stitch for. 🙂

Now you made a Herringbone HDC stitch. Now repeat the above steps as many times as needed depending on the pattern.

I hope you like this unique stitch just as much as I do.

  1. Thank you for posting this tutorial. I am in the process of making a herringbone half double crochet slightly slouchy hat. I know I can start it off basically how I would any hat. However, I have issues on the increasing sometimes if I don’t have access to a pattern. Can you tell me how I would increase to get this? With this stitch should it always be done with a stitch marker so there are no seams?

    1. Hi Blackwomeneluding,
      regarding increases, I would place 2 Hbhdc in the same stitch. So for example, after doing a magic ring and placing a certain number of stitches inside the magic ring, I would place 2 Hbhdc in each stitch all around (for continues rows/rounds , where there is not slip stitch, I would always use a stitch marker). The next row, I would do the 1Hbhdc in the first stitch, and 2 Hbhdc in the second, then repeating this pattern around. The following row would start with 1Hbhdc in the first 2 stitches and then next stitch has 2 Hbhdc, repeating the pattern around. After that, it would be 1 Hbhdc in the first 3 stitches and then 2 Hbhdc in the next stitch, repeat. Do you see the pattern of increases? I hope that makes sense. You increase as many times as you need to. I usually measure the diameter and multiple that number by 3.41 and that gives me the head/hat circumference. After you are done increasing, place 1 Hbhdc in each stitch all around for as many rows as you need. Let me know if that is not clear. 🙂
