The abbreviation for the double treble stitch is dtr.

Step 1: 

Start with a chain.

Step 2: 

Yarn over three times, insert hook in the 7th chain from hook, yarn over again and pull up a loop.

You will have five loops on your hook.

Step 3: 

Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on hook. 

You will have four loops on your hook. 

Step 4: 

Yarn over and pull through again the first two loops on hook. 

You will have three loops on your hook.

Step 5: 

Yarn over and pull through once more through the first two loops on hook.

You will now have two loops remaining on your hook. 

Step 6: 

Finally, yarn over again and pull through the last two loops on hook.

Your double treble stitch is complete.

This is how a row of treble stitches looks like.
