The Triple / Treble Stitch

Overview

The Treble, or Triple Crochet Stitch is, as you’d probably guess is essentially the Double Crochet with one more step. It’s abbreviated as “tr” and is slightly larger than the double crochet. I don’t use them often if ever, but they can be a good way to add more design to a beanie and they’re used often in “shells” or groups of stitches.

The Treble / Triple Stitch (tr)

Yarn over twice.

Insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull through.

Yarn over and pull through two loops on the hook.

Yarn over and pull through two loops on the hook again.

Yarn over and pull through two loops on the hook one final time to finish the stitch.

Treble Crochets need 4 extra chains to skip in the beginning of a Row, or added to the beginning chains to continue up evenly.
