What is Treble Crochet?
The treble crochet stitch is a slightly more involved double crochet stitch – if you can double crochet, you can learn how to treble crochet. The triple crochet stitch follows the same general format of the double, only instead of yarning over once before you start your stitch, you will yarn over twice. This double yarn over to start will add height to your stitches (which leads to a quicker project!).
