Half Double Crochet Decrease Photo Tutorial

Step by step photo tutorial to make a half double crochet decrease #halfdoublecrochet2tog #hdc2tog #mandmcrochetdesignsphototutorial #crochettutorial

This Step by step photo tutorial will show you how to make a half double crochet decrease or more commonly known as a half double crochet two together (hdc2tog).  The way I do it is slightly different to the normal way, but I find it is less “bumpy” and less visible to the eye.

I am a visual person, so I like to learn new things visually, especially crochet stitches.  I found a photo tutorial really helped me, so thought I would make one for you.

 

Yarn over.

 

Insert hook into next space, yarn over.

Pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook).

Yarn over, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop (4 loops on hook).

 

half double crochet two together
Yarn over, pull through all 4 loops on your hook (1 loop left).

The normal way to do an hdc decrease is a bit bulky for my liking, this ways just looks less like a decrease and is, in my mind, less noticeable.
