Half Double Crochet (hdc)
For this stitch, yarn over the hook, then insert it under the V of the 3rd chain stitch from the hook. Yarn over again and draw the yarn through the V.
You now have three loops on the hook. Yarn over and draw the hook through all three loops on the hook at once.
One half double crochet stitch is complete. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you reach the end of the row. To proceed to the next row, make two chain stitches and turn.
