 Crocheting Triangles - This Design Was Crocheted and Photographed by Amy Solovay; The Crochet Pattern Was Designed by Darla Sims, Published by Leisure Arts

Triangles are intriguing shapes to crochet. You can work them starting with a ring in the center and crocheting outward, similar to how you would crochet a granny square; you can also work triangles in rows, either increasing or decreasing, depending whether you want to start with the tip or the longer edge. There are also other approaches you could take when crocheting a triangle. Want to learn more? If so, check out these resources:

  • Free crochet triangle pattern list - We've posted a variety of free triangle patterns here on our website.
  • Triangle Treasury book - This is a crochet pattern book published by Leisure Arts. The book features 25 patterns for crocheting triangle shapes, plus several more patterns and ideas for what to do with the triangles you learn how to make.

Pictured here: I crocheted one of the triangle patterns in the Triangle Treasury book, and this is how it turned out. It's pretty, don't you think? Perhaps I'll use it as a coaster. So far, that's the best idea I've thought of for a single triangle of this size.

Do you have a better idea? Or, for that matter, any ideas at all that you'd like to share for how to use crocheted triangles? If so, we'd love to check them out; you're invited to post and share, either in the comments below or on our community-generated list of ideas for using crocheted triangles. Hope you'll be inspired by the list, and that you'll share some ideas too.

Thanks for dropping by!
