How to crochet Larksfoot stitches

In this DROPS video we show how we crochet Larksfoot stitches.
Work a number of chain stitches that are multiples by 4+1. We have already crocheted a chain row with 21 chain stitches and we have selected to crochet with 3 colors.

ROW 1: Work 1 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, 1 treble crochet in the next chain stitch, * 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch, 1 treble crochet in each of the 3 next stitches *, repeat * - * the entire row, turn.

ROW 2: Work 3 chain stitch, (= 1 treble crochet), 1 treble crochet in each of the 2 next treble crochets, * 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch, 1 treble crochet in each of the 3 next treble crochets *, repeat * - * the entire row (the last treble finishes in 3rd chain stitch from beginning of previous row, at the same time the last pull through is done with a new color), turn.

ROW 3: Work 3 chain stitch (= 1 treble crochet), * 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch, 1 treble crochet in next treble crochet, 1 long treble crochet around chain stitch from 1st row / 2 rows below, 1 treble crochet in next stitch *, repeat * - * the entire row and finish with 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch and 1 treble crochet in the 3rd chain stitch from beginning of previous row, turn.

ROW 4: Work 3 chain stitch (= 1 treble crochet), * 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch, 1 treble crochet in each of the 3 next treble crochet *, repeat * - * the entire row, finish with 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch, 1 treble crochet in 3rd chain stitch from beginning of previous row at the same time the last pull through is done with a new color, turn.

ROW 5: Work 3 chain stitch (= * 1 treble crochet), 1 long treble crochet around chain stitch from 3rd row / 2 rows below, 1 treble crochet in next stitch, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch *, repeat * - * the entire row, but finish with 1 treble crochet in next stitch, 1 long treble crochet around chain stitch from 3rd row / 2 rows below, 1 treble crochet in 3rd chain stitch from beginning of previous row, turn.

Repeat 2nd to 5th row to desired length. In video we work row 1-5 one time, then 2nd row once more. We use DROPS Eskimo in the video, but the other swatch is crochetet in DROPS Puna, crochet hook size 4.0 mm, 40+1 chain stitch, row 1 is crocheted 1 time, row 2-5 is crocheted 4 times and then row 2 one more time.
