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 9: Half-Treble Crochet
The Half-Treble Crochet (htr) is a stitch that leaves out one step in the full treble crochet stitch.
Work the half-treble crochet with YO (yarn over) twice, insert hook into the next stitch, yo and pull through. Next, YO and pull through 2 of the loops on the hook. This will result in 3 loops remaining on the hook. YO again and pull through all 3 loops.
