Foundation Herringbone Half Double Crochet

This post may contain affiliate links.

I like using foundation stitches to create my starting row, because when I use a chain and crochet into, I don’t get as much stretch. So the other day when I started creating a new pattern (Lacy Clover Tank, coming soon), I played with the foundation row and came up with a way to do Foundation Herringbone Half Double Crochet (FHBhdc). I’m pretty excited about this and really excited to share it with y’all. This stitch can be used for any pattern that calls for a starting row of HBhdc. This “trick” is brought to you as part of the Tips & Tricks Tuesday at American Crochet. Be sure to check out the other tips and tricks she is sharing from various designers and others.
