Learn to Crochet: Half Double Crochet Stitch for Left-Handed Crafters

There are some things left-handed people have to learn to do with their right hands--start a car, take a picture with a standard camera, and my left-handed husband bats with his right hand because his right-handed dad taught him that way.

Crocheting should probably not fall in that category.  I say this for two reasons:

  1. I've tried to crochet as if I was left dominant just to see if I could before.  I nearly broke my brain and (even worse) almost messed up my project.  I know left-handed people are probably a little more flexible about this sort of thing, but holy smokes!
  2. There are videos for left-handed crafters.  Thank goodness.

 As I said in the half double crochet post for right-handed crocheters, the half double crochet (HDC in patterns) is a nice, solid stitch that's a little taller than a single crochet stitch and a little shorter than a double crochet stitch.  It's a common stitch, and I think it's a pretty one.

And now you left-handed people can join in on the fun if you've been waiting to learn!  No, really!  This is fun! Stop rolling  your eyes at me!

Okay, I think crocheting is fun.  But you probably do, too, if you're reading this.  Hooray!
