How do you half double crochet?

This is different from a double crochet. In a double crochet, you never pull a yarn over through more than two loops. To make a half double crochet: 1. Put the working yarn over the hook (this is called a "yarn over").

2. Insert the hook in the next stitch in the row below.

3. Yarn over again and pull that yarn over back out through the stitch. There are now three loops on the hook.

4. Yarn over again, and pull that yarn through all three loops.

When you finish a row and turn, start a row of half double crochet by first chaining two stitches. This chain-2 counts as the first stitch of the row.
