Learn to Crochet for Beginners Part 2 ~ an Elegant Washcloth

In part 2 of this Beginner’s Series I’ll teach you the half double crochet (hdc) stitch and how to use 3 types of stitch markers (stM). I go slowly and demonstrate each step several times. This gets you used to hearing how the stitch is done. The text on the screen also gets you used to crochet abbreviations which will be handy if you want to learn to read patters in the future.

In case you missed it, you can find Part 1 here

Go get your supplies (listed below) and we’ll get started!

Supplies needed:
**Yarn size and type: Worsted Weight, 4-ply. 100% Cotton.
