About Linked HDC

What is the difference between a half double crochet and a linked half double crochet? When working a linked HD crochet you are connecting the two stitches together. Linking your half double crochet stitches together creates a dense fabric.

Making the linked DC crochet is done by eliminating the traditional yarn over. Rather than doing a yarn over to start your stitch you will go through the bar that was created the stitch before. See exactly what I mean and how to work this stitch in my video tutorial.

This is very similar to the Linked Double Crochet stitch. You can learn how to work this stitch with a video tutorial as well.
