Title: Granny Triangle Crochet Pattern

Materials Needed:

  • Yarn in your choice of colors
  • Crochet hook (size appropriate for your yarn)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends


Step 1: Start with a Slip Knot

  1. Begin by making a slip knot. To do this, create a loop with your yarn, then pull the working end through the loop to form a knot. Leave a tail of about 6 inches (15 cm) for weaving in later.

Step 2: Foundation Chain 2. Chain 4. This chain will serve as the center of your granny triangle.

Step 3: First Round 3. In the first chain you made (the one closest to the slip knot), work 3 double crochets (DC). To double crochet, yarn over, insert the hook into the chain, yarn over again, pull through, yarn over, and pull through 2 loops on the hook, then yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. This makes one double crochet. Do this two more times in the same chain.

Step 4: Chain 2 4. After completing the first group of 3 double crochets, chain 2.

Step 5: Second Round 5. In the same chain you just worked in, work 3 more double crochets. This forms the second side of your triangle.

Step 6: Chain 1 6. Chain 1 to create a small space between the second and third sides of your triangle.

Step 7: Third Round 7. In the same chain again, work 3 more double crochets. You now have all three sides of your granny triangle.

Step 8: Finishing 8. To finish, slip stitch into the top of the first chain 4 you made to close the round.

Step 9: Fasten Off 9. Cut the yarn, leaving a few inches of tail. Pull the tail through the loop on your hook to fasten off.

Step 10: Weave in Ends 10. Use a yarn needle to weave in the ends, hiding them in the stitches to secure.

Step 11: Optional Edging 11. If desired, you can add an edging to your granny triangle by attaching a new color of yarn at any corner and working a round of single crochet or a decorative border of your choice.

Your granny triangle is now complete! You can make more triangles in different colors and join them together to create various projects like blankets, shawls, or even clothing items. Experiment with colors and sizes to make your own unique crochet creations.
