The half dou­ble slip stitch in this pat­tern is not com­monly used, but it is easy to work and can be used to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful knit- look fab­ric. Prac­tice this stitch un­til you have mas­tered it and it will soon be one of your fa­vorites. A half dou­ble slip stitch is sim­i­lar to a half dou­ble cro­chet in that it has 3 loops that you can see when look­ing at the com­pleted stitch. There are the front and back loops at the top of the stitch, but there is also what I term a “lower loop,” which lays on the wrong side of the stitch. As you are work­ing back across a row of half dou­ble slip stitch, you will find this lower loop po­si­tioned on the face of your work, di­rectly be­low the front loop. When work­ing in back loops only across a row of half dou­ble slip stitch, the front and lower loops will re­main un­worked and cre­ate the knit- look rib­bing on the side fac­ing you. When work­ing in the lower loops only across a row of half dou­ble slip stitch, the front and back loops will re­main un­worked and cre­ate the knit- look rib­bing on the side fac­ing away from you.
