Half Double Crochet (HDC) Stitch

Half Double Crochet Stitch (US Terms)

The Half-Double Crochet (HDC) stitch is a good balance between quick and less "holey" fabric than the Double Crochet (DC) fabric created. However, HDC works up faster than Single Crochet  (SC) and is therefore an often-used stitch for scarves and hats alike.

Here is a tutorial for HDC that is quick and easy to follow.

If you want a more detailed video, you should check out the video tutorial(s) that are created by The Crochet Crowd.


Here is a quick scarf that I created using the Isaac Mizrahi Craft Sutton Yarn in East End colors. It is a super bulky yarn and I used a J hook to create this bulky and warm scarf. The gorgeous golden and blue colors of the self striping yarn make it a quick and lovely creation for kids.

CH 17 to start.
Rows 1-end: HDC in each stitch. CH2. Turn.
Bind off when you reach desired length.
I used two skeins of the Yarn and the result was an almost 4 foot long scarf which is perfect for my first grader.
