Multiple stitches

This is usually marked by a T-shaped symbol with the number of crossbars on the stem corresponding to the number of times the thread is wound over.

A multiple crochet stitch is made on the basis of the double crochet stitch. Theoretically, we may yarn over the thread as many times as we like – each time crocheting the two first stitches on the hook at a time, as with a treble or double treble crochet stitch until we get one stitch.

If this is our first stitch in a row, we must remember to insert the hook in a stitch suitably far from the hook so as to gain the right height without misshaping the crochet piece, meaning we make a turning stitch.
