|Half Double Crochet Stitch
If you have mastered the single stitch, the rest will be easy.
Chain some stitches.
Two chain stitches count as one half crochet, so this will your first stitch.
Skip the first two chains.
YO (yarn over the needle). You should have two loops on your needle.
Stick the needle into the loop of the third chain.
YO again. You should have three loops and at least one loop from the chain stitch.
Pull the last YO loop through the chain stitch and through both of the other two loops.
See, that wasn't so hard. Keep doing this until you reach the end of your chain.
To turn, chain two. This counts as the first stitch on your next row. Turn your project over and keep on going.
