Give your Granny a modern Geometric twist with this step by step tutorial showing you how quick + easy it is to make the Granny Square Triangle.


Everyone loves Grannies! They are still one of my favourite projects to Crochet and so versatile!

You can bust your stash with colourful rounds, mix up the stitch to create filet crochet squares like in my 7 Granny Square Coachella inspired fringed cardigan, or add around intricate mandalas to make a beautiful blanket. 


But here's my latest crochet obsession...

I've been giving the Granny a geometric twist with the Granny Triangle. 


If you can make a Granny Square you will find this a breeze. They are just the same concept except using 3 clusters instead of 4 every round and an extra few degrees on the corners. 

On Friday I will be showing you an awesome colour pop project to make for your home with these but for today, here's how to make the super cool Granny Triangle.

I'm using a 4.50mm hook and Stylecraft's Special DK yarn I picked up from Wool Zone in Oakham here but if you want bigger chunkier Granny Triangles or delicate lace effect shapes just switch your hook and yarn up or down accordingly. You can also make different sizes by adjusting the number of rounds.
