Half Double Crochet is a great crochet stitch.
It’s easy to do, a little taller than single crochet.
It’s great for hats and afghans – but we don’t use it very often for amigurumi. Ami are mostly single crochet.
So why am I posting it here?
Well, next month’s Ami Club pattern uses a tiny bit of double crochet, so I wanted to make sure to have a double crochet tutorial video ready on the blog.
And it’s kind of silly to teach double crochet without teaching half double crochet first, so here’s a half double crochet video!
Just a heads up for our friends across the pond – this stitch is called half treble crochet in British patterns. I don’t know why. 🙂
