Treble Crochet Stitch (UK double trebles)

Treble crochet, also known as trebles, or if you are in the UK, double trebles, is a very quick stitch to work. It is rarely used on its own because it is so open, rather it is usually used in combination with other stitches to form stitch patterns.

It will be easier first to learn to make a double crochet stitch (UK treble stitch) before you attempt this, because really it is just an extension of double crochet.

Instructions for treble crochet

Begin by making a length of chain




Wrap the yarn twice around the hook before inserting it into the chain. Hook and pull the yarn through leaving 4 loops on your hook




Next hook the yarn up and pull it through the first 2 loops leaving 3 loops on the hook.




Continue to pull the yarn through 2 loops at a time until there is one loop left.

Repeat this into every chain.

Continue as you would with double crochet. The only differences are that you wrap the yarn twice around the hook before inserting it into a chain or stitch and you should make a turning chain of 4 instead of 5.

You will notice that this is a longer stitch than double crochet. You can make your stitches as long as you like. The more times you wrap the yarn around the hook before inserting it, the longer your stitch will be. Just remember to pull the yarn through 2 loops at a time until there is only one loop left on the hook.
