Raised treble front or post stitch (rtrf) is used to create a raised rib effect.
To work a rtrf: wrap the yarn over the hook as if to commence a treble.Instead of inserting the hook in the chain at the top of the treble, insert the hook, from right to left, behind the tr stitch of the previous row. Again wrap the yarn over
the hook.Draw the hook backwards pulling the loop through. There are three loops on the hook. Again wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the hook backwards to pull the yarn through the first two loops on the hook. There are now two loops on the hook. Once more, wrap the yarn over the hook. Draw the hook backwards to pull the yarn through the remaining two loops on the hook to complete the stitch.

so it means rtrf around the stem of treble crochet
