Two weeks ago the crochet tutorial I featured here was how to crochet single crochet. Last week I told you how to crochet double crochet. So of course this week we’re going to look at how to crochet treble crochet. This stitch is also known as triple crochet. The crochet abbreviation for it is tr. This is a bit counterintuitive because the crochet abbreviations for single and double crochet are (sc) and (dc) so you would think that this one would be (tc) but you won’t see that in any crochet patterns so look for tr instead.

Written instructions for how to crochet treble crochet

If you learn well from written instructions then these are the steps to follow to crochet a triple crochet:

  • Make your foundation chain.
  • Add four additional chains. This is your turning chain.
  • Yarn over.
  • Yarn over a second time.
  • Insert the hook into the chain that is five chains from your hook. (This is the last chain of the foundation chain before you added the four additional chains for the turning chain.)
  • Yarn over.
  • Pull the yarn through the chain. There will be four loops on the hook.
  • Yarn over.
  • Pull the yarn through the first two loops on the hook. There will be three loops left on the hook.
  • Yarn over.
  • Pull the yarn through the first two loops on the hook. There will be two loops left on the hook.
  • Yarn over.
  • Pull the yarn through the last two loops on the hook.

That’s your treble crochet stitch. At the end of the row, you would turn the work and add an additional four chains for the turning chain. You would insert the hook into the first stitch after the turning chain. Continue with the same directions as above.
