Anyone for crochet? The triple treble (UK) or double treble (US) stitch

The last stitch I’m going to take your through is known as the triple treble in the UK or double treble in the US. It’s a tall stitch and often used for open lace work.

1. Once you have made your foundation row, wrap the yarn around your hook 3 times.

2. Insert your hook into the 6th chain from the hook.

3. Wrap your yarn around the hook and draw a loop through your chain to give you 5 loops on your hook. Wrap your yarn around your hook again and draw a loop through the first two stitches on your hook (4 loops on hook).

4.  Wrap your yarn around your hook and draw a loop through the first two stitches on your hook (3 loops on hook).  Wrap your yarn around your hook again and draw a loop through the first two stitches on your hook (2 loops on hook).

5. Wrap your yarn around your hook and draw a loop through the last 2 stitches on your hook (1 loop on hook). Your stitch is finished!

6. Work a UK triple treble, US double treble into each chain stitch until you finish your row.

7. Turn your work, make a 5 chain turning chain and insert your hook into the top of the second stitch in a similar way to step 12 of the double treble (UK) stitch.

The photo, below right, shows 2 orange rows of UK triple treble (US double treble) and on the right, 2 green rows of UK double treble (US treble). Both were worked on the same size hook with similar gauge yarn – can you see the difference in stitch height?

    • Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and nominated me. It’s fantastic news and I’m really flattered. It’s so good to be part of such a supportive blogging community. I’m thrilled to say this is the second time I’ve been nominated for the versatile blogger award in the last 2 weeks, and as I’m a newbie to the blooging world it may take me a while to get another list of 15 nominations together. I have enjoyed reading your blog and nominations (love the way you have said a little bit about why you have nominated each one) and will definitely keep up to date with your latest post. x
