Ok. So you have done all the other stitches.
And you think you are ready for this.
YES, you are.
At the beginning of the double crochet stitch, you YO once, right?
The triple needs YOing twice at the beginnng of the stitch.
That means you should have 3 loops on your needle before you stick your needle through.
YO and pull through (that also means "draw through")
Now YO and pull through two loops.
YO again and pull through two loops again.
One more time, YO and pull through the last two loops.
You should have only one loop left on your hook.
You do it three times. Hence, the name, triple.
You have mastered all the basic and essential stitches. All patterns use these stitches in some form or fashion.
E-mail me and let me know how you are doing.
Any suggestions for the webpage and making it easier to understand would greatly be appreciated.
