The Double Treble Crochet (dtr)

Stitch Description

The Double Treble (or Triple) crochet is an elongated post stitch. Using the same principal as the double crochet, the Double Treble uses three yarn overs before entering the fabric instead of one. It is kind of a crazy stitch to perform but it can be useful in making embellishments and openwork.
