  10. Hook onto the yarn.
  11. Pull through the last 2 loops on the hook (1 loop remaining on the hook.) Repeat steps from 2 to 11 for each treble crochet.
  12. At the end of the row of treble crochet, chain 3.

How do I crochet a double treble stitch?

can you show me how to do a trbp around the double just made looks like. it seems to be worked around the doubles post all the way up ending up with just one post but I come up with 2 posts.

Can you illustrate "skip 3 stitches, treble crochet, go back and hdc the 3 skipped stitches"?

thanks i am working a pattern and dtr is instructed now i can continue

mistyhicks 5153275, a double treble is worked by wrapping 3 times before inserting hook into stitch, and a triple treble is worked by wrapping 4 times before inserting hook into stitch. The loops are worked off the hook by twos just as they are in the treble. HTH

I know how to treble stitch, but what or how do you do a dbl treble?????
