Welcome to Crochet University!
Over the course of 12 blog posts we will introduce you to the basics you need to know for most any crochet project. From a slip knot to a treble crochet, you’ll learn all of the basic stitches and concepts.
For Crochet University you will need some basic supplies. To begin, we’re going to be using Macra-Made super bulky yarn and a large crochet hook. The advantage of using a bulky weight yarn to begin with is that the loops and stitches are much more easily visible as you’re learning.

You will also need an easy-to-use crochet hook. We recommend Dreamz Crochet Hooks. Dreamz hooks are designed by people who know and understand the art of crochet. All hooks have grooves that stitch slippage, making life a bit easier for beginning crocheters. Dreamz hooks have a polished wood surface that insures effortless glide – they work with every type of material.

Lesson 10: Treble Crochet
Treble Crochet (tc), also called triple crochet, is a tall crochet stitch that you can work quickly. This stitch gets the name for the three times you draw yarn through the lps to complete the stitch.
Work the Treble Crochet by first making a chain foundation row. Skip the four chains next to the hook. Complete a yo twice, insert the hook into the fifth st from the hk, yo, draw yarn through the st. There are now four lps on the hook. Finish the Treble with a yo, draw yarn through two lps, yo, draw yarn through two lps, yo, draw yarn through the final two lps. The step of drawing yarn through two lps is repeated three times. Repeat these steps for each Treble Crochet in the row.
