Learn how to make this variation of the half double crochet: the linked half double crochet!
The linked half double crochet creates a denser fabric than one worked with half double crochets and it works up just as fast because the stitches are the same height.
The fabric has no gaps between the stitches, all the edges are neat and straight, and the horizontal bar along the rows give it extra texture and detail!
A great stitch to learn! =D
