Watch how to crochet raised treble diagonal rib (video & written instructions)

The raised treble diagonal rib is brilliant for cozy warm projects like scarves and throws. It's a heavily textured stitch that is both snuggly and full of visual interest.
Though it's a little fiddly, with some clever turning of your work, you'll soon get the hang of how to create this lovely pattern.
Watch the raised treble diagonal rib tutorial from Happy Berry Crochet:
You can use any weight yarn for this stitch, but a DK yarn gives a nice snuggly finish without being so chunky that you lose the intricate detail. If you're choosing a DK weight, you'll need a hook that's around the 4-5mm mark. You'll also want to have a pair of scissors and a tapestry needle at hand.
Pro tip: It can be a little hard to tell which stitch to work into next. If you are confused, look at your work from the top, and the V shape of the stitches should be clear and will guide you on where you need to go!

Written instructions
This pattern is made up in units of 4, so make a foundation chain divisible by four, plus one. In the video, 40 chains plus one are used.
Row 1: dc into second ch from hook, and then 1dc into each ch to end. Ch1 and turn.
Row 2: sk 1st st, dc into 2nd st, and next 2 sts. Now turn work and tr into 1st skipped st. Turn work back. Sk next st and dc into next 3 sts. Now turn work and tr into sk st as before, being careful that yarn doesn't get caught at back of work - insert hook into and out of sk st and yarn over with work behind. Repeat this pattern along row. Turn, do not ch1.
Row 3: sk 1st, dc into next 3 sts. Now tr into sk st by turning work, as before. Turn back and sk next st, dc into next 3 sts. Now tr into sk st, by turning work sideways and keeping work at the back while you insert hook.
Continue this pattern until project reaches desired length.
