Crochet Stitches for Rectangle Pattern
Half Double Crochet:
Insert hook from the front to the back of the stitch you are working on, then YO (yarnover) and grab a loop.
Pull back through all three loops of the hook.
Back Loop Single Crochet
It was the same as regular sc, but the back loop is not used.
A row of regular single crochet stitches is followed by a row with hdcs to create the rectangle pattern. The rows that follow are completed with back loop single crochets, followed by a row containing hdc stitches.
Skill Level: Simple
Any four- or five-weight yarn ( provided that the gauge is met).
