Triple Treble Crochet Stitch Tutorial


It’s Learn a New Thing Thursday! I’ve made that a thing now, don’t judge ;).

Today I want to show you how to crochet the triple treble crochet, aka in pattern speak: trtr.

This is a suped up version of the double or treble crochet stitch. If you can double crochet, you can work this stitch. The only difference is the number of times you will yarn over your hook first. With a double crochet, you yarn over once. With a treble crochet, you yarn over twice. With a double treble crochet, you yarn over three times. For the triple treble, you yarn over….you guessed it, FOUR times! It creates a super tall stitch that can be useful for a variety of uses, so let’s get to it!

Scroll down for a video tutorial, just in case you need to see it in action.

    Looks like a fun stitch to make. What do you use that stitch for? It seems it would make a very airy fabric and wonder what it’s good for?

      Hi Dianne! You could use it anywhere you need a tall stitch! Use it to make open/airy fabrics for summer, maybe alternated with a chain stitch for eyelets, or you could use them for post stitches and cables worked over stitches farther away from the current stitch, or you can use it as set up for the fun braiding technique I just released a tutorial for here and which I will use in my upcoming hat pattern, the Pathways to Hope Beanie! Have fun playing around with it!
