Ok, so you have mastered the single, half-double, and the double crochet stitches and are now ready to add to your repertoire. The treble stitch, also known as the triple stitch, is just a higher double stitch. When starting the stitch, instead of doing just one yarn over before inserting your hook into the stitch below, you are going to "yarn over" twice before inserting your hook (meaning, you will have 3 loops on your hook before inserting your hook into the stitch below). Insert your hook, yarn over, and pull up a loop. At this point you have 4 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn through 2 loops on your hook (you should now have 3 loops on your hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook (you should now have 2 loops on your hook), yarn over and pull through the 2 loops on your hook.
