Learn to Crochet -- Triple Crochet Stitch Video Tutorial

Here's is the next stitch in the Learn to Crochet series of Video Tutorials I've been sharing with you...Triple Crochet. If you're looking for a very tall and loose crochet stitch to work with, this is the one for you!

Take a look and then give it a try!

If you want to practice Triple Crochet while making something useful, I would recommend making a scarf. Because Triple Crochet is so tall, it works up very quickly. And since it is such a loose stitch, it makes a very loose fabric that drapes nicely. Pick out your yarn and the appropriately sized hook, chain 25 or 30 or however many stitches to make the width you want, then add 4 chains. Work your first triple crochet into the 5th chain from the hook and in each chain across. Chain 4 and turn. Work a triple crochet into the 2nd stitch from the hook and in each stitch across, remembering to work a triple crochet into the top of the turning chain from the previous row. If you forget that, you will decrease the number of stitches on each row by 1 and end up with a very short pointed piece!

This would be a good thing to make if you want to do some charity crocheting for a local shelter or church fair or for the Special Olympics.

Happy Stitching!
