the Half Double Crochet stitch! As you can see in the photo above, it's a little taller than the Single Crochet Stitch. It's one of my favorite crochet stitches because it's simple, has minimal holes, and builds your crochet project up pretty quickly. So let's get to it!!
What You'll Need
You can use whatever yarn and crochet hook you have at your disposal. In my photos, I used an H/5.00 crochet hook and a #4 weight yarn in light blue.
How to Do the Half Double Crochet Stitch
Start by making a slip knot. Now chain 12
Step 1: Yarn over
Step 2: Insert the hook into the 3rd chain from the hook
Step 3: Yarn over again
Step 4: Pull yarn back through the stitch; you should have 3 loops on your hook
Step 5: Yarn over one last time
Step 6: Pull yarn through all 3 loops on your hook

Step 7: Repeat Steps 1 through 6 in each stitch across the row (10 stitches)
Step 8: Chain 2
Step 9: Turn your work
Repeat *Steps 1 through 6 in each stitch (10 stitches), then chain 2 and turn your work*; repeat from * to * until your work is the desired size!
Tadaaa!! Easy peasy!
