Double Triple/Treble Crochet Tutorial

Since I did a review on Annie’s Hook and Needle Club this week instead of a tutorial, I thought I would write an extra post this week. I have decided on a really fun stitch to work and one that is both easy to learn and execute, the Double Triple or Double Treble. Either pronunciation is correct.

The Double Triple is a tall crochet stitch, or what is sometimes known as a post stitch. This is a very loose and open looking stitch. You will see it used in lace patterns, (particularly doilies) filet meshes and motifs, etc.

Double Triple/Treble Crochet Tutorial

Row one :

begin with a row of chain stitches


step one: wrap your yarn over three times over your crochet hook. (pictured above)

Note: You only go into the six chain on the first stitch. For every stitch after you insert the hook into the next stitch to start the Double Triple Crochet.


step two: insert hook in the six chain on your crochet row.  (pictured above)


step three: yarn over and pull through loop.  (This will leave 5 loops on your crochet hook)  (pictured above)

Note: Now everything is going to be done in groups of two’s.


step four: yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook. (This will leave 4 loops on your crochet hook)  (pictured above)


step five: yarn over and pull through the next 2 loops on hook. (This will leave 3 loops on your crochet hooks)  (pictured above)


step six: yarn over and pull through the next 2 stitches, (This will leave 2 loops on your crochet hook)  (pictured above)


step seven: yarn over and pull through the last two loops on your hook. (This will leave 1 loop on your crochet hook)  (pictured above)


Repeat across for a row of Double Triple Crochet

Note: You must turn your work to start the second row.


Second row: chain five (what is known as your turning chain), then skip first stitch (pictured above)

Note: A turning chain counts as your first stitch, this is why we skip the first stitch.


Repeat across (make sure you crochet the last stitch in the top of the turning chain at the end of each row.)

Note: When you go back to count your stitches, do not forget your turning chain as this counts as your first stitch.

This is the double triple/treble crochet, It is a fun and easy stitch to work. Let me know how you enjoy working it.

On a different note, this is your turn to share with me. I would love to see some pictures of your December projects that you were working on. If you would like to share, just click on my Facebook page (link on the left) and post on the Crochet with Passion Facebook page. This is an open invitation to everyone. I would love seeing the different items that people crochet.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
