The half double crochet and chain even, is a stitch combination I’m sure you’re going to love.

It’s a stitch I’ve used for my designs, such as the Winter Seashore Hat, Winter Seashore Scarf & Cadunt Cardigan. 

The stitch is characterized by not having big lacy holes, but still being really stretchy. 

I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.

  1. This looks like a great texture! I love stitch patterns that show great texture, especially with solid-color yarns. This looks like it would make a great dishcloth for my daughter… she enjoys the various dish cloths I crochet for her.
