Solid Triangles - Learn how to crochet them in this simple tutorial by Lullaby Lodge...

Hello lovely people, I have another tutorial for you today.  This week I will be showing you how to make solid triangles.  You might think at first that triangles are not as versatile as squares, but this is not true.  Your triangles may be used for many things.  You can join your motifs together to make blankets and throws.  String a row of them together and you have some pretty bunting.  If you are brave enough you might use them to make a bikini.  I'm sure you can think of many more ideas...



Solid Triangles


Materials

Yarn
Darning needle

Hook

Use a hook recommended on your yarn ball band

Abbreviations / Terms

US terms are used through out (UK terms)
dc - double crochet (treble crochet)
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
st(s) - stitch(s)
sp - space

Other notes: I like to substitute the ch3 at beginning of rounds for a chainless dc, you can do this if you wish or stick with the traditional ch3.  I used cotton aran / worsted yarn from my stash (Drops Paris & Scheepjes Cahlista) to make my triangles with a 5mm (H) hook, but you can use any yarn you like just be sure use a hook size recommended on your yarn ball band.


With chosen yarn and hook, ch4 and join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1 ch3 (counts as dc), 3dc into ring, ch2, [4dc into ring, ch2] twice, join with sl st to top ch3.  (12dc)


Round 2 ch3, dc in next 3 sts, [3dc, ch2, 3dc in corner sp, dc in each dc] twice, 3dc, ch2, 3dc in corner sp, join with sl st to top ch3.  (30dc)


Round 3 ch3, dc in every dc around, 3dc, ch2, 3dc in every corner sp, join with sl st to top ch3.  (48dc)


If you would like to make your triangles bigger simply repeat round 3 until required size.


If you wish to change colours after each round, fasten off at end of round and join new colour with sl st to any ch sp, ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc in same sp, dc in every dc and 3dc, ch2, 3dc in every other corner.

  2. I love your tutorials. They're so easy to follow. I WILL definitely be using them. I'm just making a pair of granny place mats at the moment. I don't have a lot of crochet time and my crochet is still slow going. Best, Jane x

    1. What a coincidence, I'm just in the process of writing a pattern for granny coasters... Look forward to seeing your place mats.
