Lhdc or Long half double crochet

Long half double crochet = Lhdc

This Lhdc is called so because you are doing a hd in the stitch below the row you would normally do the hdc in.  This yarn was kinda hard to see but when working the moebius headwrap on row 3 you see the top stitches from the FPDC, you will insert hook in that go completely through both sides and finish the hdc.

I hope this made some sense.

Front Post Double Crochet

I am hoping these instructions help understand FPDC a little bit.  Please excuse the dry hands, apparently I need lotion, haha.  Notice how the stitch goes “around the post” of the previous stitch?

To do this we are going to insert the hook in the gap next to the stitch you are going to go around. Insert the hook from the front, go to the back, make hook come back out to the front on the left side of the stitch

 

Once the hook is through on the front side complete like a double crochet, YO pull hook through and out the right side. YO pull through 2 loops, YO pull through last 2 loops.

 

Good luck~Hooked2yarn

One day while at work I got an email from a friend.  Attached was this link.  Since its the same name as mine I thought it was very interesting.  I am sharing it with you because I have incorperated it into a hat, which is now one of my favorites.
