Linked Double Crochet Stitch

The linked double crochet stitch is a useful technique when you need to create a fabric with little to no gaps. The linked double crochet stitch (LDC) has the same height as the regular double crochet, but it’s similar to a single crochet in terms of density. However, it isn’t as stiff as a piece of fabric made entirely in SC, as it retains the drape of the regular DC.

Back third loop of the HDC

Ever wondered what the mysterious third loop is? Or perhaps you heard of the “extra” or “third back” loop and never knew why it’s useful. Well, the third back loop of a half double crochet is just that, a third loop that is situated at the back of the stitch. It’s important mainly because when working into this loop, the regular front and back loops of the half double crochet stitch remain empty, creating a beautiful braided look.
