About Herringbone Half Double Crochet (hhdc)

The hhdc is a beautiful stitch with a lovely pattern, the tilt of the stitch gives the definite feel of the herringbone arrow pattern on the finished fabric. It makes a sturdy fabric suitable for many different project types.

Materials

The materials I used for the swatch are:

The hhdc can be done with almost any yarn or hook, so feel free to use whatever you have!

Herringbone Half Double Crochet

The Herringbone Half Double Crochet is very close to a regular Half Double Crochet with a slight variation of the stitch to get the beautiful design!

You can start with any number of chains, and there is no pattern repeat.

Here are the steps written out and below you can find the step-by-step photos.

Use The HHDC

The Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch looks beautiful in the Hampton Handbag!

  1. Yarn over, insert hook into the next stitch, pull up a loop. You’ll have 3 loops on your hook.
  2. Draw the loop you pulled up through the middle loop on your hook, like you are doing a slip stitch. You’ll have 2 loops left on your hook.
  3. Yarn over, pull through both remaining loops on your hook.

That’s it! The only slight change from the regular hdc is pulling the first yarn over loop directly through the first loop on your hook like a slip stitch, then completing the stitch as you normally would!
