The Half Double Slip stitch is an easy crochet stitch to work. It is a great alternative to a simple slip stitch.

One of the challenges of working a simple slip stitch is that the stitch can get very tight and difficult to work into. Working a half double slip stitch makes it so much easier to work into.

It also has a fun texture that is the same on both sides!

The Half Double Slip Stitch

Even though, when working the half double slip stitch, you are always working under both loops of the stitch in the row below, the end result of the fabric is similar to a ribbing.

The finished fabric is a solid design that has a little stretch to it.

How would you use this stitch?

Let me know how you would use the stitch in the comments below! While working with it I felt that it would be a great texture for a throw blanket or even a cozy pair of slipper socks because of the thickness!

Materials:

For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 5.5 mm crochet hook.  The hook shown here and in the video below is an Odyssey hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

Half Double Slip Stitch:

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.  At the end of each row you will need to chain 1 and turn your work.

Don’t forget to check out the free video tutorial linked below!

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you will need any multiple of stitches for your foundation chain.

For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 21 chain stitches.

Row One:

In the second chain from the hook, *yarn over and insert your hook into the chain. Yarn over and pull up a loop continuing to pull the loop through all the loops on your hook. Repeat from * into each chain stitch across the row.

Chain one and turn. 

Row Two:

Yarn over and insert your hook in the first stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop continuing to pull the loop through all the loops on the hook. Repeat this into each stitch to the end of the row.

Chain one and turn.

And that’s it!

Continue to repeat row two for as long as you would like. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
