The Linked Treble Crochet Stitch is an amazing variation of the traditional treble crochet stitch.

Most importantly, it’s a variation that removes the gaps that you usually get between the stitches, resulting in a denser fabric.

The linked treble crochet stitch is great for patterns where you don’t want those gaps. With a tighter fabric there’s so much you can make, such as winter garments or clothing where you don’t want gaps, blankets, pot holders, baskets & much more.
