What is a half-double treble crochet stitch?

Overview of the Tutorial "Half treble crochet (htr)" is the same stitch as "half double crochet" in the United States (hdc). Half-treble crochet is a size in between double and treble crochet that seems somewhat looser than double crochet. The Tate Circular Rug Crochet Kit includes this stitch. See also: Double Treble Crochet (dtr), Triple Treble Crochet (tr).

Half-treble crochet is used to make cuffs, collars, and edgings for garments. It can be used in place of double crochet for a less dense fabric. The height of each stich is about the same as a single crochet, but the loop is made by pulling up two loops on one hook or by using a larger hook. There are three ways to make half-treble crochet: forward, backward, and woven into the chain. Whichever method you choose, keep track of which way goes with which color.

To start, insert hook into indicated spot on square, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, draw yarn through both loops on hook. This makes one sc into the back bump of the square. For the second sc, insert hook into next sp, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, draw yarn through both loops on hook. You should now have two loops on your hook. Repeat these two steps for each remaining sc. When you get to the last sc, do not turn, but go forward instead.

Which is taller, a double crochet stitch or a treble stitch?

It's a bit shorter than a double crochet stitch, but the methods are the same. This pattern is ideal for textured bags or intricate sweaters. This is one of the longer crochet stitches. It's only four chains tall and requires a little repetition. Try the triple crochet stitch if you want to work up a pattern rapidly. It's almost as easy as a double crochet stitch and it looks like this.

What is the tightest crochet stitch?

This is also known as the "split single crochet." It is crocheted in the same way as a single crochet, but instead of placing the hook into the top of the stitch, you insert it directly into the center of the stitch, dividing it in half. This is a lovely stitch with a knit-like appearance. It can be used for lacey effects or as a foundation chain for other stitches.

The split double crochet is identical to the split single except that after completing the first half of the stitch, you drop the hook down into the next stitch, pull up a loop, and complete the second half of the stitch in the same way. This creates two equal loops on the hook, which must be separated before continuing with the next stitch.

The split triple crochet is worked like a double crochet, but instead of dropping the hook into the next stitch, you drop it into both halves of the previous stitch, giving you three loops on the hook. You then work the triple crochet into all three loops on the hook. This stitch is often used as an accent rather than as a part of a pattern.

Finally, the split quadruple crochet is worked like a quadruple crochet, but instead of dropping the hook into the next stitch, you drop it into all four parts of the previous stitch, giving you four loops on the hook. You then work the quadruple into all four loops on the hook. This is another useful stitch for adding detail to your project.
