How to: Triple Crochet

  The Triple crochet in height is the tallest of the 'basic' stitches you will learn. This tall stitch provides a lacy effect on its own; when combined with chain stitches, you can produce expansive openwork suitable for delicate wraps and summer attire.
  To begin, chain desired number of stitches. Add 4 chains to this. Yarn over from back to front twice.


 Insert the hook in the 5th chain from hook. These 4 chains make the height of the next stitch.


  Pull up a loop. (4 loops on hook)



  Yarn over, pull through 2 loops. (3 loops on hook)



  Yarn over, pull through 2 loops. (2 loops on hook)



  Yarn over, pull through remaining 2 loops. (1 loop on hook)



  Continue to the end of the row.



  Turn your work. Chain 4, to meet the height of the next stitch.



  Yarn over twice, insert hook in next stitch. pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through 2 loops. Yarn over, pull through 2 loops. Yarn over, pull through last 2 loops.

 
 
 
 


   Continue to the last stitch, which is placed in the top of the chain 4 from the previous row, and will look like this:







  Practice!
