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. 🙂
1. Yarn over
2. Put hook through the stitch
3. Yarn over
4. Pull the yarn you just yarned over the hook straight through the chain and the first loop (loop closest to the hook). Now you have 2 loops on your hook.
5. Yarn over
6. Pull yarn through both loops. Finished with 1 Herringbone Half Double Crochet (Hbhdc)
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.
