Increasing In Half Double Crochet When Working In Rounds (HDC INC)

Learn how to increase in half double crochet when working in the round.


    • Deja Joy

      That means you will work 7 half double crochets and then increase in the next stitch with two hdcs in the same stitch. You’ll repeat that 12 times around.


    Hello Deja, I am working on a crochet pattern, instruction* hdc-inc, hdc in the next st, rep from * 7 more times (24 hdc) does it mean hdc-inc in st, 1 hdc in next st, hdc-inc in the next, 1 hdc in next st, repeat around. Is that 7
    More rows like that?

    • Deja Jetmir

      Hi there, you will make 2 HDCs in the next st, then 1 HDC in the stitch after. Do that a total of 8 times, which makes 3 stitches x 8 times = 24 sts. Hopefully that helps. 🙂


    Hello Deja Joy I have the Owl basket pattern and I would like some help please. Are the rows joined by a slip stitch and then two chain to start the next row and will that make a line up the basket.
