Are you ready to embark on a crochet adventure? The Perfect Triangle is a versatile and fun project that every crochet enthusiast should try! This free pattern will guide you through creating a beautifully symmetrical triangle that can be used for a variety of projects, from shawls and blankets to bunting and wall decor.
Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
- Yarn: Choose your favorite yarn in any color and weight. A soft, medium-weight yarn like worsted or DK works well for beginners.
- Crochet Hook: Select a crochet hook size that complements your yarn choice. The label on your yarn will typically suggest a recommended hook size.
- Scissors: For cutting your yarn.
- Yarn Needle: To weave in ends.
Gauge: Gauge is not critical for this pattern, so feel free to experiment with different yarn and hook combinations to achieve your desired size and texture.
- Start by creating a slip knot on your hook.
- Chain 4 to begin. This will be the foundation of your triangle.
- Work 2 double crochets (dc) into the fourth chain from the hook. To do this, yarn over, insert your hook into the chain, yarn over again, pull up a loop (3 loops on the hook), yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops (2 loops remaining), yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops.
- Chain 3.
- Work 3 dc into the same chain where you made the first 2 dc.
- Turn your work.
- Chain 4 (this counts as a double crochet and a chain-1 space).
- Work 2 dc into the same stitch where the chain-4 started.
- Chain 1.
- Work 3 dc into the chain-3 space from the previous row.
- Chain 1.
- Work 3 dc into the last stitch of the row (the top of the turning chain).
Repeat Row 2:
- Continue repeating Row 2 until your triangle reaches the desired size. Remember to chain 4 at the beginning of each row, work 3 dc in each chain-1 space, and chain 1 between the groups of dc.
- When your triangle is the size you want, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends.
