Basic Stitches: How to Make the Treble or Triple Crochet Stitch

posted in: How to Crochet | 1

The triple crochet stitch is the highest stitch between the single, half double, double and triple crochet stitches. This stitch can be used to create many beautiful patterns. Being the tallest stitch, it is also the least dense of the basic stitches. If you don’t want gaping holes in your work, then it’s best to use a different stitch.

If you have trouble understanding all the technical terminology mumbo-jumbo, you should check the terminology list first. Otherwise let’s get to it!

Start with your chain.


Yarn over twice.

You will skip two and go into the 2nd chain. Other people prefer skipping 3, this is absolutely up to you and your own preference.

Next, yarn over and pull through the chain loop only (not the loops on your hook). Yarn over again and pull through two loops.

Do this until you are done with your first triple crochet stitch. You can make a full row by following this recipe. Once you finish the row and you turn it around, you can chain either 2 or 3, depending on your own preference. Sometimes 2 is enough, other times 2 looks a little strange. Decide what works for yourself and your particular pattern.
