Today, I started working on a new project that requires a linked treble stitch. My mind went blank. The term "linked" should of been familiar, but it wasn't. First I couldn't find my book on crotchet stitches. It has been a while since I last used it, and it has obviously grown legs and walked away. So I went online with the idea that a quick google search would solve everything. Again, this allusive stitch taunted me! I couldn't get the two YouTube tutorials I found to play. One site gave instructions, but the photos that were suppose to illustrate the steps were missing. I'm a visual girl. It will make much more sense to me if I can see a stitch being done.
After much wasted time searching on the internet I was able to figure it out. Anyway, I thought I would write it down if for no one else but myself. It is a really easy stitch. It just took my mind a while to realize that! I have tried to write it down as basic and clearly as possible so I will have it handy the next time I need a refresher.
Linked Treble Stitch
