How to Crochet the Double Treble Stitch (dtr)

Post by Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence

Tall stitches like the double treble stitch (dtr) allow you to use the basic crochet skills you already know to create interesting new looks in your work. This stitch, also called a double triple, is similar to a treble crochet stitch but with one extra yarn over.

Step One

 

Yarn over the crochet hook three times.

Step Two


Insert the crochet hook into the work where you want the stitch. If you are making the first double treble into your starting chain then insert the crochet hook into the sixth stitch; the first five stitches in the chain count as the first double treble stitch.

Step Three

Yarn over and pull through the stitch, leaving five loops on the hook.

Step Four

Yarn over and pull through the first two loops, leaving four loops on the hook.

Step Five

Yarn over and pull through the first two loops, leaving three loops on the hook.

Step Six

Yarn over and pull through the first two loops, leaving two loops on the hook.


Step Seven

Yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops.

That’s your double treble crochet stitch. Repeat steps 1-7 across the row for a full row of double treble crochet stitches. If you want to create another row of these stitches then chain five (which counts as the first double treble) and turn your work and repeat steps 1-7.
