Half double crochet is one of my favorite crochet stitches. More exciting than single crochet but without the full commitment of double crochet. 😉 If you can do the half double crochet, I have good news! You are already able to complete the third loophalf double crochet. Watch the video below!
Third Loop Half Double Crochet (Video Tutorial)
The third loop half double crochet is so similar to regular half double crochet but this one simple alteration literally changes everything. The effect this creates is absolutely beautiful, and reversible!
To make the third loop half double crochet, you will yarn over, insert your hook into the third loop only of the previous hdc, yarn over again. You should now have three loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all three loops, completing your third post only half double crochet.
This stitch is typically worked in the round because it is difficult to seam, although it is technically possible.
Prefer the video tutorial? Yeah, me too. 😉
