- 4.5 mm crochet hook;

Special stitch used: tr4tog or triple 4 together:
[yo twice, insert hook in the stitch indicated in the pattern, draw loop through,
(yo, draw through the first 2 loops, leaving the next loops on hook) x 2 times] x 4 times in the same stitch.
You have 5 loops on the hook; yo, draw through all 5 loops on the hook.

( In other words, you will make 4 unfinished treble crochet, leaving each time the last loop on hook, so at the end you'll have 5 loops on hook; yo, draw through all 5 loops on the hook.)
