Sure, here’s a simple crochet triangle pattern suitable for beginners:

Materials Needed:

  1. Yarn: You can use any yarn of your choice, but for beginners, a medium-weight yarn (worsted weight) is recommended.
  2. Crochet Hook: Choose a hook size that matches the yarn you’ve selected. Usually, the yarn label will suggest an appropriate hook size. For worsted weight yarn, a 5.5 mm (I-9) hook should work well.
  3. Scissors: For cutting yarn.
  4. Yarn Needle: To weave in ends.


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


Note: You can adjust the size of your triangle by changing the number of starting chains and the number of rows you crochet. This basic pattern is for a small triangle suitable for practicing, but you can make it larger by increasing the initial chain length and adding more rows.

Starting Chain:

  1. Start by making a slip knot and placing it on your hook.
  2. Chain 4.

Row 1:

  1. In the 4th chain from the hook, work 2 dc (double crochets).
  2. Turn your work.

Row 2:

  1. Chain 3 (counts as 1 dc).
  2. In the same stitch as the turning chain, work 1 dc.
  3. In the next stitch, work 2 dc.
  4. Turn your work.

Row 3:

  1. Chain 3 (counts as 1 dc).
  2. In the same stitch as the turning chain, work 1 dc.
  3. In each of the next 2 stitches, work 1 dc.
  4. Turn your work.

Repeat Row 3:

  1. Continue repeating Row 3, increasing by 1 dc in each row until your triangle is the desired size. For example, on the next row, you’ll work 1 dc in each of the next 3 stitches, then 4 stitches, and so on.
  2. Remember to turn your work at the end of each row.


  1. When your triangle is the size you want, fasten off your yarn by cutting it, leaving a tail of about 4-6 inches.
  2. Thread the yarn tail onto your yarn needle and weave it in to secure the end.

Optional Edging:

  1. If you’d like to add a decorative edge, you can single crochet (sc) or slip stitch (sl st) evenly around the edges of your triangle.

And that’s it! You’ve completed a basic crochet triangle. This pattern is excellent for beginners to practice their chaining and double crocheting skills. Once you’re comfortable with this, you can explore more complex crochet patterns and create various projects like scarves, shawls, and blankets.
