A treble crochet stitch is a taller crochet stitch that creates an open and airy fabric.
To make it, you yarn over twice, insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through two loops, yarn over and pull through two more loops, and finally, yarn over and pull through the last two loops.
It is a bit taller than a double crochet and gives a lacy appearance to your crochet work.

Treble Crochet Step-By-Step
Here are the steps for making a treble crochet (tr) stitch in crochet:
Yarn over the crochet hook two times, wrapping the yarn around the hook from back to front.
Insert the crochet hook into the desired stitch or space in the previous row.
Yarn over again and pull up a loop through the stitch or space. You should now have four loops on the hook.
Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on the hook. You should have three loops remaining on the hook.
Yarn over again and pull through the next two loops on the hook. Now, you should have two loops left on the hook.
Yarn over one more time and pull through the final two loops on the hook. This completes the treble crochet stitch.
Repeat steps 1-6 for each treble crochet stitch across the row.
