#3 DK weight {This weight will give you drape, but depending on your project, any weight yarn will work}

US H Hook {5mm} Use a hook size suitable to the yarn you are using

Tapestry Needle {for weaving ends}


TrX rows – 2 pattern repeats = 2” {this gauge is based on using DK yarn}

The multiple is 3 + 2 if using a single crochet foundation, plus 1 if starting with a foundation chain.

Tutorial for the Treble X Crochet Stitch

Row 1: Fsc your desired length using the multiple of 3+2, turn. For this swatch, I’m using Fsc 26. [26]

Or Row 1: If working from a foundation chain use 3+2, plus 1. For this swatch you would chain 27. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and all the way across ch 1, sc in each st across, turn [26]

Row 2: ch 4 {counts as a tr}, do not work in the st directly below the ch 4, *TrX over the next 3 sts; rep from * until 1 st remains, tr in the last st, turn [8 TrX, 2 tr]

Row 3: ch 1, sc in each st and ch-1 sp across, turn [26]

Rows 4-: Rep Rows 2-3 { until you reach your desired measurement}.

The hand-dyed yarn used in this tutorial is from indie yarn dyer High Desert Yarn. All of her yarn is inspired by the colors found in nature. It’s not only gorgeous, but soft to the touch and a pleasure to work with.
