How to Crochet: Treble Crochet 3 Together (Tr3tog)

By Candace – 7 Comments

Treble three together (tr3tog) is a decrease you can see used in the Cat Scrubbie pattern. Like other decreases, it’s performed by working each stitch up to its second to last step an then pulling through all remaining loops.

To complete a tr3tog: *yo twice, insert hook into next st, yo, pull up a loop, (yo, draw through 2 loops) twice, repeat from * two more times, yo, draw through all loops on hook.

For left-handed pictures, hover over the images.

Yo twice, insert hook into next st

Yo, pull up a loop (yo, draw through 2 loops) twice

Repeat the first 2 steps, 2 more times. After the 3 tr are made, there will be 4 loops on the hook.

Yo, draw through all loops on hook
