Simple Crochet Stitch Pattern 5
This simple pattern we make with the extended half double crochet stitches (ehdc). Extended half double crochet make similar to extended double crochet, but after we made an extra chain stitch we must catch working yarn and pull it through all three loops on the hook. This fabric is quite dense and tough. Suitable in cases when you want to keep the shape: for crocheting bags, wallets, slippers and etc.
For an example make chain stitches a multiple of 2, plus 1 chain for the symmetry of pattern, plus 3 turning chains
1 row: 3 turning chains, * 2 extended half double crochet in 5th chains from the hook, skip 1 chain *, 1 extended half double crochet in the last chain;
2 row: 3 turning chains, * 2 extended half double crochet in space between the stitches of the previous row * , 1 half double crochet in the top chain of the turning chains.
All the next row make same as the second row.
