Treble Crochet
The treble crochet is a little taller than double crochet.
Step by step
The treble crochet is a little taller than double crochet.
You will see that it is worked very similar to the double crochet with a few variations:
To work a treble crochet,
yarn over twice and insert
your hook into the stitch indicated in the pattern.
Yarn over and draw the yarn through the stitch.
You will have four loops on your hook.
Yarn over again and draw the yarn through the first two loops on the hook.
You will have three loops on your hook.
Yarn over and draw the yarn through the first two loops on the hook again.
You will have two loops on your hook.
Yarn over one last time and draw the yarn through the rest of the loops.
As you can see, crochet stitches are built from the top.
This is why you must work a certain number of chains at the beginning of each row to reach the height needed to work your stitches.
Treble crochet is four chains tall, so at the beginning of a row of treble crochet you have to chain four.
These chains count as the first treble crochet,
so the following stitches should be worked starting with the second stitch from the previous row.
