Published on May 7, 2020 1 min read

Looking for a lofty stitch to crochet lovely loose lace, statement vests, breezy summer shawls or jazz up your granny squares? The double treble crochet (dtr) produces a gorgeous lightweight fabric that you'll just love adding to your crochet stitch kit. In the UK and Aus this stitch is called the triple treble (ttr) crochet.

The double treble begins with yarn over your hook three times before you start. Your turning chain is 5 chains in height. If you're on the hunt for a stitch taller than the treble crochet, the double treble is the next stitch up!
