This treble crochet scarf is a super simple way to practice treble crochet stitch. Worked in Bernat Blanket yarn (or similar super bulky yarn) it makes a big, warm and cozy scarf that doesn’t take a lot of time to stitch.

What is Treble Crochet?

Treble crochet is the tallest of the most common crochet stitches. Because the UK uses different terminology from the US, you might also see this stitch referred to as a double treble (for them, the treble is what we in the states would call double crochet).

Making a treble crochet stitch is pretty easy if you know the basics of single and double crochet already.

  1. Yarn over twice.
  2. Insert your hook into the stitch.
  3. Yarn over and pull up a loop.
  4. Yarn over and pull through two loops.
  5. Yarn over and pull through two loops.
  6. Yarn over and pull through the last two loops.

As easy as it is, I had a little trouble working treble crochet at first because of the way I put the yarn over the needle. If you’re having trouble making treble crochet stitches, try wrapping the yarn the opposite way and see if that helps.

Treble Crochet Scarf Inspiration

I decided to crochet a treble crochet scarf because I wanted to practice the stitch and work out why I was having problems with it.

It also happened that I had an extra ball of yarn I bought because it was on sale when I was buying the yarn for my crocheted axolotl, and I didn’t want it to end up in stash.

Because Bernat Blanket is such a heavy, warm yarn, I didn’t want the stitches to be super dense, so I figured treble crochet would be perfect for that.

Supplies

  • one skein Bernat Blanket yarn, or about 220 yards of super bulky yarn of your choice
  • size L/11/7mm crochet hook (I used this luscious one from FURLS)
  • scissors

Gauge

Gauge isn’t critical for this treble crochet scarf, but I got about 6.5 stitches and 3 rows per 4 inches/10 cm in treble crochet.

Size

Finished scarf is 9 inches/22.8 cm wide and 54 inches/137 cm long. I used just about all of a full skein of yarn. If you want your scarf to be longer but still only use one skein, make your scarf a couple of stitches narrower.

How to Crochet a Treble Crochet Scarf

Treble crochet can be worked on any number of stitches, but you need a chain that’s three chains longer than the number of stitches you intend to work. Here the turning chain does not count as a stitch.

Chain 18. Begin to work treble crochets in the fourth chain from the hook, which should give you 15 stitches across. Chain 3 at the end of the row and turn.

Work a treble crochet in each stitch across. Chain 3 at the end of the row and turn.

Repeat this row until you are almost out of yarn.

When you get to the last stitch of the last row, fasten off. Trim the yarn end if you need to and then weave in ends (the crochet hook is the best tool for this since the yarn is so thick
