Free ~ Textured Crochet Patterns Worked in the Third Loop of Hdc

One of the easiest and most fun ways to add texture to your crochet projects is to crochet in the third loop of half double crochet stitches.

Last week, we talked all about the third loop: what is the third loop, where to find it, and how to crochet third-loop stitches. If you missed it, you can find the free tutorial here.

But learning a new stitch is not as fun as actually using that stitch and create something beautiful with yarn and hook!

So, today, I would like to share with you a few of my favorite free crochet patterns that use stitch combinations in the third loop of half double crochet.

Pin this post for later and always find more inspiration for your next project!
