Take your crocheting to the next level and explore the wonders of the half double crochet stitch with this web seminar!

The half double crochet stitch (hdc) is widely used, but wildly underused. Variations of the hdc can result in quite a few interesting styles and textures. Flat, ridged, bumpy, raised, and even stitches that resemble the knit stitch are all possible with the hdc.



Take your crocheting to the next level and learn all of the unique, clever, and creative ways this simple stitch is far from basic. This web seminar will show you how to add texture and interest to your crochet fabric by making simple changes to the half double crochet stitch. From where you put your hook to working in the round, the hdc stitch is one of the most versatile stitches used in crochet. Learn how this simple stitch can have a completely different look depending on which loop you use and how this change affects the look of your finished fabric.


Once you have mastered the different ways to create this easy stitch, test your new skills with a free bonus pattern to create a fun and useful bag. You will be amazed by the different looks this simple stitch can create. Join us for this fun exploration and put your imagination to the test creating fun new textures of your own.

  • How to work the half double crochet in rows and in the round

Overall a great video to enhance your crochet technique
This webinar is packed with good information on the many variations of HDC. It is easy to work along with the webinar to get a feel for doing the variations. The graphics were helpful in showing what the stitches should look like. Review by Julie (Posted on 4/20/2015)
