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:
- Yarn over hook twice (as if you are going to make a tr)
- Insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook) as in the photo below.
- Yarn over and pull through two loops (3 loops on hook). See photo below.
- 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.
