MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED TO LEARN THE TREBLE CROCHET STITCH:


Crochet Hook:

To follow this crochet tutorial you’ll need a crochet hook. When I crochet I usually use 2 types of crochet hooks. Because of that, I’ve listed them below:

  • Knitpro – Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks – My first choice as of now is the Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks from KnitPro. First of all I do love them because they opened my world to wood hooks and impressed me with their amazing lightness & how they feel in my hand. Even though they’re not padded, they never give me any strain while using them. However I’ve only come across them in sets and they are available here:
  • KnitPro – Waves Crochet Hooks. While I love crocheting with wood hooks,  the padded hooks from Knitpro are the crochet hooks I use almost as much as favorite. They are padded hooks & are comfortable to crochet with.  They are a little heavier than wooden hooks, but the padded comfort is truly amazing. You can purchase these both in sets & alone. They are available here:
  • Love Crochet

6. Yarn over

7. Pull through 2 loops on hook

Starting:

I’m starting this guide off without any extra explanation on how to chain or start a row. Consequently you should know how to crochet a chain.

To keep it simple, I’ve chained 10 stitches, turned and crocheted single crochet stitches across the chain row. Finally I have also chained 3 stitches to get the height of the treble crochet stitch.

Due to the height of the treble crochet stitch, I always suggest you start with 3 chains in the beginning of the row.

 

1. Yarn over
