"How To Crochet A Granny Triangle (Step By Step Photo Tutorial) I'm sure you've heard of (and maybe experimented with) crochet granny squares. But have you ever tried to crochet a Granny Triangle? Crochet granny triangles are ideal for beginners because they are super easy to crochet and they take very little time per piece. You can crochet them in one color, or change colors every round to make your granny triangles really pop. Crochet Granny Triangles have a very simple composition, made up of clusters of double crochet (dc) stitches, much like Granny Squares, except you only have 3 corners to compose your triangle. When would you need a Crochet Triangle, you ask? Well, you might want to crochet a triangular-shaped shawl or scarf, or if you want to stack your Granny Squares diagonally for a bag or a top, for instance, then you'll have a zig zag bottom and top. Now if you want to fill in those gaps for a straight bottom, then you'll have to fill in those gaps with Granny Triangles. Once you've made a few Granny triangles, all you gotta do is join these lovely granny triangles to create just about anything you can imagine: tops, bunting, bandanas, shawls, hats, tops, baby blankets, large blankets, bags, dresses, pillow covers, pot covers, mason jar cozies, you name it! You know, what I really love about Crochet Granny Triangles is you can carry them with you whenever you're out. Even if you're working on a large project like a crochet blanket, you don't have to carry the whole project along with you. Just the Granny Triangles you're working on and then join them all together at home."

Materials List

  • 5 colors of some classic DK yarn (I used Paintbox Yarns for these Granny Triangles). Any yarn would do really, just make sure it's not hairy or fuzzy.

  • A tapestry needle
  • A pair of scissors
