Sure, here’s a free crochet pattern to make a 60-degree triangle. This shape is often used in various crochet projects, including blankets, shawls, and even garments. For this pattern, I’ll assume you have some basic knowledge of crochet stitches.

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in your choice of color
  • Crochet hook appropriate for your yarn (usually recommended on yarn label)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors


  • ch: chain
  • dc: double crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch


Foundation Chain:

  1. Begin by making a slip knot, then chain 4.

Row 1: 2. Make 1 dc in the 4th chain from your hook (the first chain you made). This counts as your first dc and your turning chain.

  1. Ch 2 (this creates the corner space).
  2. Make 2 more dc into the same chain.
  3. You now have the first side of your triangle.

Row 2: 6. To turn your work, chain 3.

  1. Rotate your work slightly so that you can work along the side of the triangle.
  2. Make 3 dc evenly spaced along the side. This will help shape your triangle.
  3. When you reach the corner (the ch-2 space from the previous row), make 3 dc, ch 2, and 3 more dc into the same ch-2 space. This creates the corner of your triangle.

Row 3: 10. To turn your work, chain 3.

  1. Work 3 dc evenly along the side of the triangle.
  2. At the corner (the ch-2 space), make 3 dc, ch 2, and 3 more dc.
  3. Continue this pattern, working 3 dc along each side and creating corners with (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in each ch-2 space.

Continue Rows: 14. Repeat Row 3 until your triangle reaches the desired size. Each row will add one more set of 3 dc stitches to each side and create a corner as previously described.

Finishing: 15. When your triangle is the size you want, fasten off your yarn, leaving a tail for weaving in.

Weaving in Ends: 16. Thread the yarn tail onto a yarn needle.

  1. Weave in all loose ends to secure them.

That’s it! You’ve completed your 60-degree crochet triangle. You can use this triangle in various ways, including as part of a larger project or by making multiple triangles to create a geometric design. Experiment with different colors and yarn types to create unique and beautiful crochet pieces.
