Treble Crochet Stitch

The Treble Crochet, written as tr in crochet patterns, is a tall and loose stitch that is about the size of 1 and 1/2 double crochet. The Treble Crochet is often used as a design element rather than the main stitch in the design. It’s great for achieving extra height in a fabric.

For this tutorial, we are using Mary Maxim’s Best Value Yarn in the color Cottonwood, and a size I-9 (5.5 mm) hook.

Step 1: Chain 13; (9+ 4) The last three chains are the same as a Treble Crochet, so all together, we’ll have 10 stitches. Take a look at our video on How to Chain if you need assistance.

Step 2: Yarn over twice by wrapping the yarn from behind around the hook two times and insert your hook into the middle of the 5 chain from the hook. The 4 skipped chains count as the first dc when indicated in the pattern.

Step 3:  Yarn over and pull the yarn through.

Step 4: Yarn over and pull the yarn through 2 loops on the hook.

Step 5: Yarn over and pull the yarn through 2 loops on the hook again.

Step 6: yarn over and pull the yarn through the 2 remaining loops on the hook.
