The first time I saw a crochet triangle I was so amazed… I know, sounds idiotic…..but I really thought that it was pretty cool…and though I was dying for the pattern, I was a little embarrassed to ask patterns from a person , I barely knew. Fortunately, for me, another crochet pal asked her the pattern which she very readily shared and thus began a great fascination for moi.
I found this pattern on the internet…..whoever the designer …she/he is awesome…..such a simple pattern and yet so many possibilities…..
HOW TO CROCHET A TRIANGLE
The tutorial below is based on this closed pattern for a triangle.
Here is the written pattern,
Make a basic knot or a Magic Ring.
Chain 3, 2 dc into the basic knot; 4 chain; 3dc into basic knot; 4 ch; 3dc into basic knot; 4 ch; ss into first ch of 3 ch.

Triangle Charts from the internet
These Triangle charts are very useful if you are thinking of making something unique. Granny squares though much loved and frequently over done…may not be every crocheter’s special project…..but even a Beginner can whip up some thing special with triangles.
The trick here is to know how to place and join them. Triangle Motifs when used intelligently are very versatile and can change an average crocheter’s work into designer ware. Choose the pattern and yarn/thread that you want to use carefully and work the pattern in. I have collated a few triangle charts and also the ways in which various brilliant designers have put them together.
