Crash Courses with Connie Lee: Half Double Crochet Video Tutorial


Time for another tutorial! These first few will be for the basic stitches and as before, I'll be using a nice large hook to help you see what's going on with a single strand bulky weight tshirt type "yarn" so that you don't have to try to tell the difference between the anatomy of your yarn (the plies) and the anatomy of your stitches!

Your scenic tour also continues with a wintery look down off one of the walking trails I frequent. Yes, my fingers got a bit cold filming this, but it was worth it because you probably won't see many snowy backdrops from me!

I hope you enjoy this little crash course in the half double crochet and please do let me know what you'd like to see in future tutorials!

Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get first notification of new videos and please give me a thumbs up when you stop by!
