If you’re looking to create a quick and loose crochet project, treble crochet is the way to go. Sometimes referred to as “triple crochet stitches,” treble crochet stitches are the tallest of the commonly-used crochet stitches, with the others–from shortest to tallest–being slip stitches, single crochet stitches, half-double crochet stitches, and double crochet stitches.
When you crochet a row of treble crochet stitches, you’re basically crocheting three single crochet rows at once, which not only saves time, but also yarn (and therefore money). Tight stitches usually wind up making products pretty itchy, which is why most prefer not to use single crochet stitches. Since treble crochet stitches are spread out so much, they’re pretty great for blankets/afghans, sweaters, scarves, and more.
