The Forked Half Double Crochet stitch is an easy one row repeat with similar texture on both sides!
It would be a great stitch for those reversible projects, I would love to use it in a blanket! The stitch is worked similar to a half double crochet two stitches together but with a little twist. This “twist” prevents the fabric from decreasing in stitches. The stitch is versatile as you can use any multiple of chains, and creates a solid fabric with a beautiful texture. In a lot of ways it reminds me of the Triad Stitch. Be sure to check out the video tutorial below.

The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with stripes of colour!
