The triple crochet stitch is a basic crochet technique that creates a fabric with long posts separated by large eyelets. It is a stitch used in many other crochet patterns.

Also known as: treble crochet.

Skill: Beginner

Pattern:

Step 1: Begin with a row of chain stitches. How many you need to chain will be determined by your pattern.

Tip: Remember the stitch on your hook should not be included in your chain count.

Step 2: Wrap your yarn over your crochet hook twice, going from under, to around, and then over.

Step 3: Take your crochet hook and insert into the fifth stitch on your chain row.

Step 4: Wrap your yarn over your crochet hook.

Step 5: Pull the yarn through the first stitch with the crochet hook. You should now have four stitches on your crochet hook.

Step 6: Wrap your yarn over your crochet hook again.

Step 7: Pull the yarn through the first two stitches with your crochet hook. You should now have three stitches on your crochet hook.

Step 8: Wrap your yarn over your crochet hook once more.

Step 9: Pull the yarn through the next two stitches with your crochet hook. You should now have two stitches on your crochet hook.

Step 10: Wrap your yarn over your crochet hook one last time.

Step 11: Pull the yarn through the last two stitches with your crochet hook.

Repeat steps 2-11 until you have reached your desired number of stitches.

To continue your triple crochet on your next row chain four, then turn your work and begin your next triple crochet stitch in the fifth stitch of your new row.

After a few repeats your pattern should look like this:
