Crochet for Beginners – Half Treble and Double Treble stitches


Hello and welcome to Crochet with Curio.
In the last video we showed you the two basic stitches – the double crochet and
the treble crochet. In this video we’re going to show you two more useful
stitches, which is a half treble crochet and a double treble crochet. You can
continue using the practice piece that you did in the last video, or if you
haven’t done that then do a slip knot and chain 20. Now you’ll remember to get
up to the level we need to be for the double crochet we chained one and to get
to the level we needed for the treble crochet we chain three. Now the half
double crochet is somewhere between the two so to get up to the right level we
need to chain two and turn our work. The half treble crochet is very similar to a
treble. The first chain of the two counts as a stitch and we’re going to, as with a
treble, wrap over our yarn, go into the next stitch, catch the yarn and pull it back
through, so we’ve three loops on the hook, however this time we’re going to yarn
over and go through all three. So we’ll do that again. Yarn over, through the
stitch, catch the yarn, pull it back. We’re left with three loops on the hook. Yarn
over pull through all three. Yarn over, through the next stitch, catch the yarn, pull it back, yarn over, pull through all three. Sometimes it’s a little bit
difficult if he yarn is tight, so try and work quite loosely. Again yarn over,
through the next stitch, catch the yarn pull it back, yarn over, pull through all
three. So keep practicing that for a couple of rows remembering at the end
of each row that we chain two as a turning chain and that it counts as a
stitch. Now when we get near the end of this row we must
remember to crochet into the very last stitch so we keep a nice even edge all
the way up. And we’re going to continue by doing a double trouble. Now a double
treble is taller than a treble and so we have to chain up 4 and turn our work And for a double treble we wrap the yarn
round twice, go through the next loop, catch the yarn and pull it back. So we
have four loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through the first two so we’ve three
loops on the hook yarn over pull through the next two so with two loops on the
hook and yarn over pull through the final two. You can see it’s quite a tall
stitch. So we’ll do that again. Wrap the yarn around twice, through the top of the
next stitch, catch the yarn, bring it back, so we’ve four loops on the hook. Yarn
over, through the first two, leaving three loops on the hook, yarn over through the
next two leaving two loops on the hook and yarn over through the final two.
We’re just going to continue that to the edge of this row. This is an example
of the different stitch sizes the first four on this side aredouble crochet, the
next four half treble crochets, then the next four treble crochets and the next
four double treble crochets. T This graphic shows the different stitch heights and
how many chains you need to get you up to the right height for each stitch. If
you imagine that the stitches are building blocks, it’s very easy to see
how these can make patterns. So now you know how to do all the basic stitches. In
our next video we’ll show you how to do a very simple granny square. you
