Crochet Tutorial: Linked Half Double Crochet


Linked Half Double Crochet The linked half double crochet is a variation of the
half double crochet where all the stitches are linked. It eliminates the gaps between
the stitches. To work a linked half double crochet insert
your hook into the horizontal bar in the middle of the previous stitch, yarn over and pull
up a loop, insert your hook into the next stitch yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn
over and pull the yarn trough all 3 loops on the hook. One linked half double crochet is complete. Insert your hook into the horizontal bar in the middle of the previous stitch yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop yarn over and pull through the three loops on the hook. Continue until the end of the row. When reaching the end of the row chain 2 and turn your work. The first linked half double crochet is worked
into the first stitch of the previous row. To start a new row of linked half double crochets
insert your hook into the second chain from the hook, yarn over and pull
up a loop, insert your hook into the 1st stitch yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull trough all loops on the hook. Insert your hook into the horizontal bar in
the middle of the previous stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook into
the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull trough the
3 loops on the hook. Continue until the end of the row. The linked half double crochet creates a denser
fabric than one worked with half double crochets but it works up just as fast because
the stitches are the same height. The fabric has no gaps between the stitches,
all its edges are neat and straight without holes. The horizontal bar along the rows gives
it extra texture and detail. A great stitch to learn!=) Thank you for watching! If you want to see more
