HHDC Blanket Crochet Tutorial

What is The Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch?

The Herringbone Half Double Crochet is a variation of the basic crochet stitch, the Half Double Crochet. Just like the regular half double crochet stitch, it is easy to learn and creates a great texture to any crochet project. Refer to the tutorial and video for extra help with this stitch if needed.

The HHDC Stitch: It is worked up by yarning over, inserting the hook through the designated stitch, yarning over and pulling the hook back through the stitch (three loops on hook) now pulling the hook through one loop (two loops on hook) then yarning over and pulling back through the last two loops.

Learn more about the HHDC in this video tutorial/lesson here.

Once you learn the HHDC stitch and have your yarn picked out and your size is chosen, then you are ready to go!
