Special Stitches

Back Crossed Half Double Crochet (BXhdc)

  • Skip the next st, yarn over your hook and insert your hook into the next st, yarn over and pull up 1 loop, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over your hook and insert your hook behind the stitch you just worked and into the skipped st (from the front to the back through the top two loops of the stitch), yarn over and pull up 1 loop, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook.

Helpful Tutorial

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple of 2
  • Reversible
  • this project is worked in joined rounds
  • You don’t have to use a magic ring (DMR), learn more here.
  • Make your slip stitch to join tightly (we will not be working into it). Do not count the sl st to join as a stitch (unless indicated)
  • Ch 2 to turn does not count as a stitch. This means you will work a stitch into the very first stitch of every round. So the first stitch will have the chain 2 and 1 more stitch in it. 
  • Remember we are not counting the chain 2 as a stitch, so we do not work into the chain 2 when we return to it on the next row.
