With trebles (and chains) you can, among other things, make...


... shawls and tiny towels!


How to crochet the treble stitch

Please note: by treble stitch I mean the UK term. The US term would be double crochet. If you’re used to US terms, please read “double crochet” where I write treble.

  • Wrap the yarn anti-clockwise over hook and insert the hook into the stitch on top of which you want the treble. In this case, that is the 4th chain stitch:

treble - 1

Stick the hook underneath the little “v” shape


  • Wrap the yarn over the hook, draw through the chain and wrap the yarn again. Stretched out, it should look like this now: 

    stokje haken 2


  • Draw through the first 2 loops (most left on the image) only. Wrap the yarn again, anti-clockwise, around the hook: 

stokje haken 3


  • Draw through the last 2 loops on the hook. There is now only one loop left on the hook:

stokje haken 4


Congratulations! You have crocheted a treble stitch!​


Good to know: the first row is always difficult! 
It’s quite hard to crochet into the base chain. You may have to wriggle and squirm a bit to get the hook in. This may mean that you’ve chained too tightly, so you could try again and make the chains somewhat bigger. But even then, trebling into chains is not easy! And you also have to pay attention that you’re not twisting the chain round while crocheting… 
Breathe in, breathe out...

So if you’re already fed up with crochet after only just beginning: you’re right! The first row is a bother! 
But fear not, after the first row, things will get much easier!
