How to Treble Crochet UK (US - Double Crochet)

Fiona Field • Jan 26, 2021

The Treble Crochet stitch, which is known as Double crochet in the US, is another of the basic stitches that is used very frequently! If you find the differences between the UK and US terms, click here to read more about the differences.


It's such a versatile stitch which can be used so many ways, and you'll see it used a lot in crochet patterns!

Once you've made your foundation chain, and before you make your first stitch, you bring your yarn over the hook, from back to front and then insert your hook into the 3rd chain from the hook to begin your first treble crochet (Tr).


The chain worked before starting the second row for a Treble Crochet (double crochet) is a chain of 3.  You will be working into the stitches you made in the previous row by inserting your hook under booth loops of the stitch.


In some crochet patterns, you will ask you to work into only one or the other loops of the stitch which will be written like this: BLO or FLO, which means back loop only or front loop only. This will be made very clear in the pattern. If you don't see anything about working into different loops, you can safely assume that you are working into the whole stitch.
