Double Triple/Treble Crochet Tutorial


It has been a long, snowy winter for the Midwest with more then our normal amount of snowy days, where it seems all you want to do to is find some indoor projects. What a blessing to have to be snowed downed! Now you have a legitimate excuse to crochet and learn new stitches. If you find your self in this spot today and have never worked the Double Triple/Treble then why not join me today as we try to master this very useful stitch?

The Double Triple, or if your prefer the Double Treble- is a very tall stitch created by the long post and creates a mesh like fabric that is useful for crocheting openwork projects or making embellishments to your projects.

So lets get our yarn and hook and crochet a chain of 30 to get started.

Double Triple/Treble Tutorial (dtr)


Step 1: Yarn over hook three times, (pictured above)

Step 2: then insert hook into the six chain from hook and yarn over hook and draw yarn through chain
(there should be five loops on the hook). (pictured above)

Step 3: Wrap yarn over hook and draw through two loops (there are now four loops remaining on the hook).  (pictured above)

Step 4: Yarn over hook and draw through the next two loops (there are now three loops remaining on the hook).  (pictured above)

Step 5: Yarn over hook and draw through the next two loops (there are now two loops remaining on the hook).  (pictured above)

Step 6: Again, loop yarn over hook and draw through the last two loops on the hook (there is now one loop remaining.)  (pictured above)

Congratulations, you have just completed one double treble crochet.

We all know that practice makes perfect, so continue by working in each remaining chain across. When you reach the end you will have twenty five Double Treble/Triple crochet. When you are counting keep in mind that the chain five always counts as your first Double Treble/Triple Crochet unless stated otherwise in the pattern.  

At the end of each row of treble crochet, you would chain 5 to turn.  (pictured above)


Then you will work a Double Treble/Triple in the second stitch and in every stitch across.  (pictured above)

Repeat row two until desired length.

Now that you have worked a few Double Treble/Triple crochets, let me know what your think. I know it creates a long stitch, but I have always thought of these as fun and enjoyable stitches to work.

Until next week, 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.
