The Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch (HHDC)

A couple of months ago, we took our annual family trip to my favorite Michigan spot, South Haven! It was an amazing week full of great the Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch (HHDC), gorgeous sunsets, and lots and lots of beach time. Of course I had to stop in at Needle In A Haystack for some Cascade Longwood yarn so that I would have something to work on down at the beach!

This is probably my favorite yarn out of anything I’ve used. It’s so soft and has such a stunning, defined finish, and gorgeous drape. It’s not the easiest yarn to find, but you can always order it from Needle In A Haystack or online from stores like Jimmy Beans Wool. And if you’ve spent any time around my blog, you probably noticed that I loooooove slouchy hats.

I never get bored with them! I usually use temporary names for my patterns until it’s time to publish them, and then I come up with something permanent. I called this one the Shiplap Slouch as I was making it, and the name just stuck. Something about the color and the lines reminds me of shiplap. Yes, I do watch a lot of Fixer Upper, why do you ask?

HHDC: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and pull through both loops. If you need additional help, Moogly has an excellent video tutorial here. This pattern is written in American Standard Terms. Pattern is worked in a continuous, seamless round until the band.

Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of rounds and do not join unless instructed to do so. Since we are working in a seamless round, your ribbing rows will not meet up perfectly in the back. Pattern uses regular HDC to set up each ribbing row. The abbreviation is very similar to HHDC, so pay attention! Also called the Camel Stitch or RibHDC.

Round 2: 2 HHDC in each ST around. Round 11: HHDC in each ST around. Round 12: HDC in each ST around. Round 13: HHDC in 3rd loop of each ST around. Round 14: HHDC in each ST around. Round 15: HHDC in each ST around. Round 16: HDC in each ST around.

Round 33: HHDC in 3rd loop of each ST around. You should now have 6 rows of ribbing. Rounds 34-39: HHDC in each ST around. SC in each of the next 2 STS, SL ST in each of the remaining 2 STS. Fasten off and weave in your ends. Pattern Permissions This is a FREE pattern, and by using it, you’re agreeing to the following legally-protected conditions.

This is absolutely beautiful and stylish! I’m going to get the same yarn and try it out! The cowl just ties it all together nicely. Thanks again for making these free.

I first began watching You Tube videos to learn how to crochet, then graduated to watching videos to make an item I was saddened at some of the videos because they’d only show part of how to make the item. 13 and their sister sixteen,just see them every day for tea after school the twins love your slouch hats especially the ship lap slouch, could you give me any idea what the English equivelant of your yarn would be, I have tried one or two sample squares but can’t get the tension right. And the fringe totally sets off the cowl. Is the magic circle started with 12 dc like in the tutorial or 9 with the HHDC? The tutorial is just that — a tutorial. I wish that making a tutorial video were a simpler thing for me, but at this stage in life, it’s not something I can feasibly do for every pattern I put out. If you want to make a child sized hat, you’ll have to adjust your stitch count for that.

I’m really liking this slouch and the cowl. I will make it for my daughter soon. I also love your vacation spot S. I go there at least once a week. Thank you for the great patterns.

I love your patterns and your vacation spot. I’m having trouble with the first 5rounds measuring right is the diameter or the radius suposed to measure 3in. I had half the hat done the 2nd time I tried and it was to big. I’m using a red heart worsted weight 4 and I’ve adjusted my hook size but it’s not working for me. Did you do a gauge check? 3 pattern would be very tricky to match gauge. May I ask what Red Heart yarn you’re using, and what hook size?

I made both the hat and the cowl. They were fun and easy to make. Will you have a pattern for boot cuffs in the Shiplap pattern? I would love to give as a set. Thank you for your free patterns!

Their very easy to follow and beautiful. I don’t have any plans at this point, as I’m currently wrapping up my last batch of patterns before my baby arrives in December. But, if I were going to make them, I would probably just follow the cowl pattern but start with fewer chains. I love crocheting but can never understand or read a pattern. Is there a video on utube of the cowl and slouch hat?

I’m working on the Shiplap Slouch. I forgot to check the gauge after the first 5 rounds. After about 16 rows, I realized the hat was looking quite big, and then I remembered to measure. I frogged a bunch, but am hoping not to start all over. I’ve completed all the increase rounds? You can do that without frogging it. I did not write down the measurement at the point of the final increase.

The hat will narrow a bit when you add the band, so you might be fine. Sorry, I didn’t make that clear. I’m not even sure if you could match gauge with the yarn you’re using without it becoming an extremely stiff hat. Lol I was thinking Caron Simply Soft was a 3, but it’s a 4. 75mm hook and took out one round of increases. With the hat completed, I realize I probably could have taken out two increase rounds.


I had to decrease gradually throughout the band rows. In the end, I think it turned out well! Not stiff, but a little slouchier than yours. I think the recipient will love it! I love all of your patterns.

I really want to try this lightweight yarn for a first try. Which color did you use on this pattern? Is it unisex or is it mainly for women? This my first time using this stitch. I made for my friends son. I do wish the colors of yarn were readily available in the description.

It can become a pain to read through the comments looking for the color if you’re trying to match the yarn. I don’t always do that but sometimes you just love the color of the example. Thanks for your wonderful posts and free patterns. I just taught myself to crochet and am quite thankful for patterns I can try without investing too much.

I crocheted this hat for her and she absolutely adores it! We got on Pinterest so she could choose another style for me to crochet. She chose your rustic slouch pattern without knowing the shiplap hat was your design as well. That is so good to hear and means SO much to me! Please pass along to her that I am completely honored to have her wearing my designs and I hope she enjoys those hats long after she kicks that cancer’s butt. Thank you so much for your blog and patterns.
