You might as well go to your local yarn store and buy a ton of yarn right now, because I can guarantee you will not be able to stop making these.
For the longest time, crocheting triangles seemed impossible. I couldn’t figure out how to make such a sharp point. It’s honestly a little embarrassing how long this took me to do! I found a similar pattern a while ago and I never got past the third step because I didn’t see the triangle taking shape, so I thought I was making a mistake somewhere. Finally I just sat down and tinkered with the pattern and voila, a large triangle was made.
You can get away with making a medium sized triangle with one skein of Caron Cakes (my new personal favourite yarn). Want to try making something a little bigger? Just keep adding more rows! I am in the process of making another one of these out of the Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. I am only about half way through the ball so far and it’s almost as big as the one I made with the Caron Cake yarn, so we will see!
What you will need:
- Pretty much any hook between a 4.5mm – 6.00mm
- I used a J/10-6.00mm
- Gauge does not matter for this pattern
- At least 350 meters of worsted weight yarn
- The more yarn you use, the bigger your triangle
- Yarn needle
How to start:
- In a magic circle [ ch 2, dc 2, ch 2, dc 3 ] pull circle tight, ch 2, turn
- You should have two double crochet clusters with a ch2 space in the middle
- Dc 2 into the first stitch from the last round, work [ dc 3, ch 2, dc 3 ] in the ch 2 space, dc 3 into the space between the dc and the ch 2 from the beginning previous round, ch 2, turn
- You should have 4 double crochet clusters
- Dc 2 into the first stitch from the last round, dc 3 in the space between the two double crochet clusters from the previous round, work [ dc 3, ch 2, dc 3 ] in the ch 2 space, dc 3 into the space between the two double crochet clusters from the previous round, dc 3 into the space between the dc and the ch 2 from the beginning previous round, ch 2, turn
Keep repeating this pattern, adding two double crochet clusters for every row, until you are happy with the size of your triangle. I managed to make 28 rows with my Caron Cakes yarn before I needed to stop in order to save enough yarn to make my tassels!
Once you are satisfied with your triangle width, weave in your tails and get creative! You could leave this scarf plain the way it is, or you could add some fun tassels! I made three large tassels for each corner of my scarf and I love the way it turned out. Each tassel was about 4-5 inches, so it added a lot of length to my scarf.
Like I said, you are going to have a hard time NOT making these. Try using some chunky yarn and see what happens! Lace weight? That could take quite a while but I’m sure it would be beautiful.
