What is Treble Crochet?

Treble crochet (tr) is a taller, more advanced version of the double crochet stitch. It’s worked over three stitches instead of two and produces a thicker fabric with more texture than double crochet. Treble crochet is often used for hats, scarves, and other winter wear items because of its thick, warm fabric.

How To Treble Crochet: The Basic Stitch?

To treble crochet, yarn over twice (yarn over once for each loop), insert your hook into the next stitch, and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook. Repeat this process until you have six loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all six loops to complete the stitch.

How To Treble Crochet in The Round?

When trebling in the round, you will need to use a different technique called “the ring.” This is because treble crochet stitches are too tall to work in the normal way when crocheting in the round. Here’s how to do it:

Make a loop with your yarn and place it on your hook. Chain three (this counts as your first treble crochet stitch). Insert your hook into the loop you made at the beginning of this row, and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook. Repeat this process until you have six loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all six loops to complete the stitch.

Now you’re ready to start trembling in the round! Just keep crocheting into the ring you made at the beginning of the row, and make sure to always chain three before trebling into the next stitch.

Advanced Treble Crochet Techniques:

There are a few advanced treble crochet techniques that can add some extra interest to your projects. Here are a few of my favorites:

To do a treble crochet decrease, yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook. Repeat this process until you have three loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all three loops to complete the stitch.

This decrease creates a scalloped edge and is perfect for edging projects or adding detail to hats, scarves, and other winter wear items.

To do a treble crochet cluster, yarn over three times, insert your hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook. Repeat this process until you have six loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all six loops to complete the stitch.

This technique creates a textured fabric that is perfect for afghans, throws, and other large projects.

To do a treble crochet puff, yarn over four times, insert your hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook. Repeat this process until you have six loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all six loops to complete the stitch.

This technique creates a puffy fabric that is perfect for baby blankets, pillows, and other soft items.

Conclusion:

So there you have it! These are just a few of the many techniques you can use when trebling. With a little practice, you’ll be able to apply these techniques to any project you choose. And who knows? You may even come up with your treble crochet tricks along the way!

Happy crocheting! 🙂
