Do you want to learn how to crochet a treble stitch?

We have a treble crochet stitch photo tutorial along with easy to follow step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the learning process.

The treble crochet (in US terms) is a tall stitch that works up quickly and is taller than the double crochet and half double crochet. In combination with chain 1 in between treble crochet stitches, it creates modern lace that is geometrical and very easy to crochet. It can be used in a variety of crochet projects: triangle scarfs, shawls infinity scarfs, beach cover-ups, pool dresses, and light blankets.

Treble crochet stitch is easy to learn and is a great crochet stitch to add to your toolbox: having a few crochet stitches under your belt will make you a better crafter and crocheter so you can be confident to try new projects and free crochet patterns.

Here is a detailed TREBLE CROCHET STITCH TUTORIAL

Where can you use TREBLE STICH?

To practice and master this crochet stitch, chain any odd number plus 4 (it counts as the first treble crochet stitch). In this sample, this is a treble crochet + chain one combination. Each row you alternate treble crochet and chain one by crocheting a treble into chain one space from a previous row. It creates a modern-looking lacy stitch that is just perfect for summer scarf or a light shawl.

This tutorial is concentrating on how to make a SINGLE TREBLE for tr+ch1 stitch.

How do you crochet a treble stitch?

Wrap the yarn around the crochet hook twice (3 loops on the hook).

Insert the hook into 1st chain one space.

Grab the yarn with the crochet hook and draw it through the chain stitch and up onto the working area of the hook; (4 loops on the hook).

Pick up the yarn with your crochet hook (5 loops on the hook) and draw it through the first two loops on the hook (3 loops on the hook).

Pick up the yarn with your crochet hook (4 loops on the hook) and draw it through the next two loops on the hook (2 loops on the hook).

Pick up the yarn with your crochet hook the last time (3 loops on the hook) and draw it through the two remaining loops on the hook (1 loop left on the hook).

Chain 1.

Crochet another treble into the next chain one space from a previous row.

How do you keep your crochet fabric straight with alternating treble stitches and chain 1 stitches?

To keep your crochet fabric straight, start with chain 5 (that counts as tr+ch1) and finish each row with 2 trebles into the last chain 1 space. Note that these last treble crochet stitches at the end of each row do NOT have chain 1 in between.

That’s it! Now you can use treble crochet stitch in many easy crochet patterns. That’s the best way to master your skills and create something beautiful and practical in the process.
