Half Double Crochet Between Stitches

For this stitch technique I chose to use an H (5mm) hook, and I (5.5mm) hook, Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton. This yarn is a #3 light weight 100% cotton yarn. It’s one of my go to yarns when working on stitch tutorials. I also love using it for scarves and items for the home.

Using a hook size up from that the pattern or yarn label calls for – I used my I hook

Row 2: Chain 2, *hdc in between the next 2 hdc on the previous row,* repeat from *to* across, ending with 1 hdc in the begging chain 2. Turn (16 hdc)
OR
you can work 2 hdc in that last space between the previous stitches. (this is my preferred method as it tends to fill in more of that open space.
