How to Do the “htr”

This tutorial is written using United States crochet terminology.

The half-treble or htr is a step between the double crochet (dc) and the treble crochet (tr). It’s a little taller than a dc, but shorter than a tr. I wrote more about the htr at Crochet Spot.

Here’s how to make the US htr:

  1. Yarn over hook twice (as if you are going to make a tr)
  2. Insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook) as in the photo below.

  4. Yarn over and pull through two loops (3 loops on hook). See photo below.

  6. Yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook (one loop left, and htr complete). It’s just a little shorter than a tr.

In U. K. crochet terminology, the US htr would be UK hdtr.
