How to Crochet: Quintuple Treble (Quin tr)

By Candace – 7 Comments

The quintuple treble is an insanely tall stitch, so tall it takes eight chains to start off a row. It’s not a stitch that comes up too often, but like its shorter cousins, it’s very simple to do. It’s good for things like lace or projects where you want to cross stitches over longer distances.

To make a quintuple treble, simply, yarn over 6 times, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, (yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook) 7 times.

For a left-handed view, mouse over the photos, and they will flip.

Yarn over 6 times.


Insert hook into next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop. There will be 8 loops on the hook.


(yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook) 7 times.

    When doing stitches taller than a triple crochet, I often find that the top gets very loose and floppy. Do you have any tips for addressing this? Thank you for posting about it, I’m fascinated by tall stitches but I have trouble doing them because of the aforementioned problem. 🙂

      I just make sure the working loop from the previous stitch is pulled tight and hold it that way with my finger while I work the stitch.

    I know you can go a long way with the wraps for longer stitches. Do you know the names for those stitches after the quintuple treble? I have a pattern that I downloaded for a medallion which uses an overlay stitch that the designer called an extended double crochet which of course it wasn’t that had like 19 or 20 wraps that were then worked off 2 at a time. Now that one was hard to do, but I did it!

    • Candace says:

      They’re usually called some kind of multiple treble stitch. Which multiple it is is determined by the number of wraps minus one.

    I know, I just wanted to know the names!

    I’ve always wondered about these super tall types of stitches. I think I might try it as linked stitch, just to see how would work for a dish/washcloth.
