Trinity Stitch Tutorial
The Trinity stitch consists of chain stitches and single crochet decrease stitches. This stitch gets its name because there are three vertical bars per stitch. You do need to know how to make a single crochet three together, but once you get the rhythm going this stitch is easy as pie. And would you LOOK at that texture! Yummy!
Do try to keep your tension a bit on the looser side, so that you can easily get your hook into your stitches when crocheting the following row.

Note that the outside single crochet stitches should NOT have a chain next to either of them. Not after the first single crochet of the row and not before the last single chain of the row. You’ll see what I mean in the Trinity stitch video below:
