Simple Solid Granny Triangle

Hello Crafters!

I recently posted a tutorial for my Super Simple Solid Granny Square as a great all-purpose square that you can use for practically any crochet project! I have decided to use that pattern for my latest project which is my Easy Granny Square Tank Top. (Keep your eyes peeled because that tutorial will be coming in the next couple of weeks!)

As I started my tank top project I realized I was going to need some half squares to complete the project. (Or ‘triangles’ as some people call them!)

So after a bit of research (and trial and error) I figured out the Super Simple Granny Triangle which works perfectly with my tank top pattern but would also work great for any other project that usually uses granny squares.

So let’s begin the Super Simple Granny Triangle!

Start with a magic circle. (check out this tutorial to make a magic circle)

Chain 3. (This will count as your first double crochet stitch).

Stitch another 6DC into ring. Close ring.

Turn over your work so that the stitches that you just did are facing away from you.

Chain 3. Work 2DC into the same stitch.

Work 1DC into each of the next two stitches. 5DC into the next stitch. (This will create the corner of your triangle)

1DC in each of the next two stitches. 3DC in the last stitch.

Work 1 DC into each of the next 6 stitches. In the next stitch, work 5DC (corner of triangle)

Work 1DC into each of the next 6 stitches. End the round by working 3DC stitches into the last stitch.

Continue with the same pattern until you reach your desired size!

Important Notes

**Don’t forget to turn your work at the end of each round**

**The pattern will remain the same for each round except that the amount of stitches in between the corners will increase by four stitches each time. (Two stitches are added to each corner per round and four stitches are added to the top corner in each round.)**
