In this tutorial you will learn how to crochet this stitch in a row and in a round.
Also, this stitch looks pretty normal as rows or rounds of treble crochet. But its texture looks different when you crochet it.

As the name says, the stitches are linked as you crochet the Linked Treble Crochet. This technique allows you to prevent having gaps between the stitches. Also it makes sure you do not have too much bulkiness when creating a more tight stitch.
If you would like to know how to crochet this stitch in a double crochet version, check out my tutorial for it HERE.
Please check out the texture and look of one row of linked treble crochets. You can see that it looks like 3 rows of single crochets with two horizontal lines in between.
This means, if you want to crochet a piece that has a similar look as single crochets. you should use the linked double crochet. It will also go much faster.
Also, I have the linked half double crochet ready to publish soon as well. In the mean time, check out my other very popular crochet stitch tutorials HERE.
So, let’s get started with the Linked Treble Crochet Photo Video. The photo tutorial can be found right underneath it.

In Rows and Rounds
How to crochet the Linked Treble Crochet in a Row
Step 1: First, make a chain of the length you desire or need. Then, insert your hook into the 2nd chain from the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop, then repeat this with the 3rd and 4th chain from the hook. You now have 4 loops on your hook. Finish this like a normal treble crochet (*yarn over, pull thru 2 loops, repeat from * two more times). You made your first linked treble crochet. Now you see these horizontal bars (picture 3 and 4).
Step 2: *Insert your hook thru the first horizontal bar and pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next bar and pull up a loop, and then insert the hook into the next chain and yarn over and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook). Finish it like a normal treble crochet. Repeat from * until the end of the row. Chain 4 and turn.
How to finish a Round using the Linked Treble Crochet:
Step 1: Let’s say, you are making rounds. If you, after round 1, want to connect the first with the last stitch via a linked slip stitch, you will need to insert the hook thru the horizontal loops of the last stitch (top down) and then insert the hook thru the bottom horizontal bar from the first stitch (bottom up), then yarn over and pull thru all 2 loops. Now, insert the hook through the top horizontal bar (bottom up) of the last stitch.
Step 2: Now, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops. Feel free to also slip stitch to the actual loops of the first stitch of that round. Although it does not make too much of a difference. You would now chain 4 and continue with linked treble crochet in the new round.
