How to Do the “htr”

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. Here’s now:

  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)
  3. Yarn over and pull through two loops (3 loops on hook)
  4. Yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook (one loop left, and htr complete)
