How to: Crochet in the Third Loop [Video]

My newest free pattern, the Gold Luxe Cowl, involves crocheting in the third loop.  This method creates a beautiful, knit-like look using crochet methods!  Working half double crochets also allows a good amount of stretch in the fabric, giving this cowl its lovely drape without looking or feeling too dense and rigid.

You can wear the Gold Luxe Cowl different ways, too!

Check out my video tutorial below to learn how to crochet in the third loop.

If you're more of a picture and written instruction learner, take a look at my photo references below.

Remember, grab the free pattern for the Gold Luxe Cowl to practice this easy crochet method with stunning results!

Happy crocheting~
