The double treble crochet stitch is a tall stitch that can give a lot of drape and air to a project! It provides a delicate look to your project without having to deal with intricate, delicate stitch work – win-win, right?
This is also one of my favorite stitches for getting the most “bang for your buck” – the most distance out of your yarn. It doesn’t take very much yarn to make each stitch, yet it provides you with a lot of height each row.
Double Treble Crochet – sounds a bit daunting, right? The premise of the double treble crochet stitch is actually very simple, and is very similar to the crochet stitches you are already familiar with and comfortable using!
For this stitch, you may use any yarn that you are comfortable using, plus a hook size that corresponds well with your yarn. In the photos, I am using Sewrella yarn in Classic Sock and a 3.5mm hook. Any yarn weight with any corresponding hook size will work while you practice this stitch!
Dtr: double treble crochet
Begin The Stitch Pattern
Start a foundation chain. You may chain any amount, +5 chains at the end.
Row 1: Starting in the 6th ch from the hook, dtr in each stitch across.
- To Dtr: Yarn over 3 times and insert your hook into the next stitch. Yarn over and pull through the stitch – you should now have 5 loops on your hook. *Yarn over and pull through 2* repeat until only 1 loop remains on your hook.
Row 2: Ch 5 and turn. The starting ch 5 counts as the first stitch, so do not work another stitch in the first stitch. Dtr in each remaining stitch.
Continue repeat Row 3 until you reach the length that you desire.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
