Since they are pretty similar, and Terry suggested it, I'll put them together today. I include two different sites to learn from, The first one is where I get the paragraph from and the second one (per Terry also) has a video of the stitch. I'll admit I'm a member of Annie's Attic and never realized they had videos lol. If anyone has questions, feel free to post them, I'll answer as accurately as I can, and I'm sure Terrywilkinson can help also.
Half Double Crochet (hdc)
The half double crochet stitch is slightly taller than the single. It has a pronunced ridge in its fabric.
YO and insert hook in 3rd chain from hook. Catch Yarn, A, and draw a loop through the loop.(3 loops on hook), Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops loops on hook to complete stitch. Work a half double across row in each chain across row. After last stitch chain 2, turn and begin 2nd row.
Double Crochet (dc)
The double crochet stitch twice the height of the single and less compact. It forms the basis of many pattern stitches.
YO and insert hook in 4th chain from hook. Catch Yarn, A, and draw a loop through the chain.(3 loops on hook), Yarn over and pull through 2 loops, Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook to complete stitch. Work a double across row in each chain across row. After last stitch chain 3, turn and begin 2nd row.
