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 and works up over a 2 row repeat. This is a fun stitch to add to your stitching knowledge and would be wonderful for a blanket, scarf or a hat!
