A couple of the patterns that I’ve published (or ones that I’m working on at the moment!) include a double treble crochet (dtr) stitch. Its really a very simple stitch but I thought I’d share how to do it….I’m using UK Crochet terms 🙂
The double treble is made the same way as a treble but with an extra “wrap” around the hook…It makes it a bit taller than a treble and you work it as follows:
Step 1, wrap yarn around the hook twice.
Step 2, put hook through chain and pull through a loop as you would with any stitch:
Step 3, put yarn around hook and draw through two loops on your hook
Step 4, repeat step three for next two loops on hook
Step 5, repeat again for last two loops on hook
…and that’s it, you’ve made a double-treble! Nice one!
