Here’s the visual breakdown. You can hover over the pictures with your cursor to see the left hand view.

To start your triple treble, yarn over four times. Your work should look like this:

Next, insert your hook into the next stitch.

Yarn over again and pull up a loop. There will be six loops on your hook.

Yarn over and pull your working yarn through two loops five times.

    I like using this stitch with chs inbetween to make a super open mesh-y fabric.

    Next the quad?

  3. Andrea says:

    In the beginning of the instructions, we’re told to yo 4 times. Underneath the directions say to yo 5 times. In the photo, it looks like there’s a yo 4 times. Which is right?

    Andrea :o)

  4. I agree with Andrea. There seems to be a mistake, but which is incorrect, the 4 or the 5?

  5. Brenda says:

    When I do the triple treble the first stitch on the needle always gets very loose. How do I keep this from happening?

  6. Darlene says:

    Put your finger over the wraps to hold them in place and work off carefully. You may have to work with the finger in place. Awkward I know, but it works.
