This how-to will show you how to work in treble crochet, which is a tall stitch and creates an open fabric with lots of drape. In this how-to, we have used a 5mm crochet hook and the yarn is Shiny Happy Cotton in Chalk Yellow. Lets get started!

To work in treble crochet, create your foundation chain. For the purpose of this video we chained 20 stitches. Chain an additional 4 stitches, this is your turning chain and you must work this step at the beginning of every row. For the chain stitch how-to, search for "chain stitch" in the search box at the top right of this page!
