dc (US) / tr (UK)

In this DROPS video we show how to work the double crochet (US) / treble crochet (UK).

You work a double crochet / treble crochet as follows: Wrap the yarn round the crochet hook and insert the hook in next stitch. Wrap the yarn round the hook and pull the yarn through the stitch only, leaving 3 loops on your hook. Wrap the yarn round the hook again and pull through the first 2 loops only. Wrap the yarn round the hook again and pull through the last 2 loops.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

Our videos do not have sound.

We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English.

We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. Enjoy!

I have got to the part where I make a double crochet in each chain, the bodice part, and it had made it wavy and larger in comparason to the bottom

Dear Angela, if your question refers to one of our patterns, could you please ask it again under the comment section of this pattern?It would be then much easier for us to check. Thanks for your comprehension.

DROPS 99-23 by DROPS Dasign is not working for me. I have the UK direction and I need to have the US translation please.

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 - 11:02:

Dear Mrs Herritt, remember to always check/edit language under Foto - find the pattern with US-crochet terminology as well as related videos here. Happy crocheting!

Hei. Viser denne videoen to ulike måter å hekle staver på? Annen hver stav i videoen hekles som beskrevet i teksten, men annen hver stav hekles ved at det trekkes gjennom 2 masker, og så kastes og trekkes gjennom de to siste maskene. Hvorfor ulik metode for annen hver maske? I video som illustrer hvordan felle/minske ved å hekle sammen to staver brukes kun den ene metoden for å hekle staver.

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 - 07:47:

Hei Madeleine. Stavene hekles på samme måte (som beskrevet i teksten) i hele videoen, bortsett fra de 3 luftmaskene i begynnelsen av 2.rad. mvh DROPS design

Thankyou for this explanation, I have read books and have never grasped the difference between dc/ tr until watching this video! I will now be able to crochet more accurately. Fortunately it makes little difference when making toys! It just alters the size.

Dawn Lysinger 02.05.2017 - 15:44:

I am reading a patter that says 3tr/dc. What does this mean?

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 - 09:33:

Dear Mrs Lysinger, you have to work 3 sts either tr or dc, depending on the row you are working. Remember to post your question on the pattern you are working on, it may be easier to give you a correct answer. Happy crocheting!

MENAAA 11.01.2017 - 11:48:

This (tr around ch-space) what does it mean ,please?

DROPS Design 11.01.2017 - 18:29:

Dar Menaaa, you will see in the video below the difference between working in a stitch, or around a ch-space. Happy crocheting!

Carol D 05.06.2016 - 23:21:

Videos have tutorials for both DC (US) and TR (UK) which terms are used in pattern? In other words, is the pattern itself written in US or UK terms? Important to know that before I start! I'd LOVE to make this for my 1 granddaughter, but want to make sure I do it right. I hate to waste time frogging if I don't have to. Hope I get an answer to this.

DROPS Design 06.06.2016 - 10:04:

Dear Carol D, make sure you are reading pattern in the correct language by clicking on the arrow to select language below the picture and chosse appropriate language, either UK or US to get correct terminology. Happy crocheting!

Anja Lodin 07.01.2016 - 22:49:

Det är i texten det står fel. Den första genomdragningen genom en ögla ska inte vara där, man drar igenom 2 först, gör ett omslag och drar igenom de 2 sista på nålen, när man gör en st. precis som filmen visar. När du virkar 1 hst. gör du ett omslag och sen drar du igenom alla 3 öglorna på nålen på en gång. :-)

Cecilia 29.12.2015 - 15:38:

Hej, vet inte om jag är ute och cyklar nu men jag upplever inte att textbeskrivningen och videon visar samma sak. Textbeskrivningen är för en stolpe men videon visar en halvstolpe eller har jag fel?

Isabel Canete 16.11.2014 - 06:15:

Me ha encantado este video y todos los que he consultado, es un sitio maravilloso . Felicitaciones sigan adelante. Isabel

Cheryl 08.03.2014 - 06:10:

I think that is a great tutorial with no sound. you do not get distracted by trying to understand voice. great clear vidoe. of to find more

Ingrid 14.01.2014 - 23:55:

Mycket svårt att förstå förklaringen,håller med om att förklaringstexten är svår att förstå

Betina 10.12.2013 - 09:20:

Hvorfor gør hun ikke det der står i forklaringensteksten?? Når hun har stukket nålen gennem masken trækker hun snoren igennem 2 lykker og ikke kun 1lykke som der står???

Eline 16.11.2013 - 16:57:

Bonjour, Pouvez-vous expliquer comment réaliser les brides en rond ? et les mailles serrées en rond ; merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 16.10.2014 - 13:46:

Bonjour Eline, vous trouverez ici comment crocheter des brides en rond et là des mailles serrées en rond. Bon crochet!

I started on his when T = dc and -/- = 1 tr. what are the bit t's ?

Thérèse Savage 18.07.2012 - 22:59:

Ce serait bien si vous faisiez une vidéo pour gaucher!

ZARDE Dominique 06.12.2011 - 16:07:

Je n'ai pas trouvé le croquis du modèle 133-9 (chaussons) et ce que je fais ne ressemble à rien et surtout je n'arrive pas à respecter les mesures en me servant de deux fils en même temps.

DROPS Design France 06.12.2011 - 17:17:

Bonsoir Dominique,il n'existe pas de croquis pour les chaussons, en suivant les explications pas à pas, ils prendront forme sous votre crochet. Pour obtenir le bon échantillon,n'hésitez pas à changer de crochet pour un plus petit ou plus gros en fonction de votre cas. Pour toute aide complémentaire, contactez votre magasin ou le forum DROPS. Bon crochet!

Maureen 23.11.2011 - 02:13:

I've just recently come across your tutuorials and they are a great help to me when converting crochet stitches from US to UK. Thank you, it's really appreciated.

Emma McGee 04.10.2011 - 00:11:

I can not find instructions for dc in back loops only then continue to dc in front loops to make :cross:Pattern # 129-12

DROPS Design 16.10.2014 - 13:59:

Dear Mrs McGee, this video may be the most relevant to work first round to this Crochet moebius pattern. Happy crocheting!
