Treble Crochet Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Today I am sharing my tutorial on how to crochet the Treble Crochet stitch.  This stitch is what I would call  the tallest stitch of the basic crochet stitches.  The Treble Crochet stitch abbreviation is tr in most patterns you use today.  The Treble Crochet stitch is a very loose and pliable fabric when crocheted.

Lets begin the tutorial on how to crochet a Treble Crochet stitch.

Step 1

Crochet chain of 14 to create your practice swatch.  (reference inage A-1).   If you need refreshers on how to chain check out this POST


Step 2

Yarn over hook 2 times and insert hook into 5th chain from the hook.  (reference image A-2 & A-3)



Step 3

Yarn over hook, pull up loop, you now have 4 loops on hook (Reference image A-4 & A-5)



Step 4

Yarn over, pull thru 2 loops on hook, you now have 3 loops on hook (reference images A-5 & A-6)



Step 5

Yarn over hook, pull thru 2 loops, you now have 2 loops on hook (reference images A-7 & A-8)



Step 6

Yarn over hook, pull thru both loops on hook, treble crochet stitch completed (reference image A-9 & A-10)



Step 7

Repeat all steps in every chain stitch across and do not forget to count your stitches.  You should have 10 tr (Reference image A-11)


Step 8

Chain 4,  remember the beginning chain 4 is counted as a tr (reference image A-12)


Step 9

Turn work, tr in 1st tr from ch 4, tr in every tr across (reference image A-13)




Remember the chain 4 at the beginning of the rows is count as a stitch.   However, some patterns do not count the beginning chains as stitches (always follow your pattern instructions).  So for our practice swatch you should have 10 Treble Crochets in each row.  My biggest tip is COUNT your stitches.
