How to crochet the Knotted Half Double Crochet Stitch
The Knotted Half Double Crochet Stitch is a fun and amazingly simple stitch to master.
It's a combination of single crochet and a half double crochet with a twist. This works up over a 2 row repeat.
It's a fun stitch to add to your stitching knowledge and would be wonderful for a blanket, scarf or a hat!
