The Vertical Half Hitch is created differently than the other variations of the Double Half Hitch. Two Half Hitches are tied, and arranged with one above the other rather than side-by-side
The knots are tied with one working cord, attached to several holding cords. With the regular Double Half Hitch, it's the opposite: there are several working cords and usually one holding cord.
So it means you can add more color to your projects
