I’ve always wondered if I was doing my treble crochet stitch correct. Originally I learnt how to do it from a book and followed along with the steps shown. I’ve made plenty of items using the trebles including blankets and bags and they have all worked out fine. Before starting the Cozy Blanket CAL in March I decided to make a doll blanket to practice the pattern, it was during this blanket I decided to watch some clips on Youtube and then realised all this time I had been doing trebles wrong.
Here is instructions on how to do trebles. After seeing the correct way and looking at what I was doing it seems I was doing a mutant form of half treble crochet. I wasn’t even doing that the same as it should. Maybe I’ve created an entire new stitch but I’m not sure how I did it now 🙂 If you’re a crochet novice like myself it can be confusing understanding stitches with the UK and US terms.
Once I got the stitch right I made a couple of dishcloths to practice including a mini run of the Cozy Stripe pattern. I enjoyed the pattern and can’t wait to start the blanket in a few weeks time.
