Granny Triangle Crochet Stitch
The Granny Triangle Stitch is a fun variation of the Granny Stitch. You are basically stacking the granny stitches rather than working between them. By stacking the granny triangles you end up with a diamond shape – so unique! A modern update to a traditional crochet stitch yet still retaining that retro vibe!
It’s no secret that I love a granny square and I’m not alone. Beloved of the crochet community, this humble little square has launched many people’s journey into crochet. It’s for a good reason…well, several reasons, actually! To begin with, it’s a really simple pattern to master. Using just a few basic stitches and with a recognizable shape, it’s a great beginning to learn shaping and stitch placement. It’s also so, SO versatile – from blankets and cushions to cardigans and cowls. You can use this simple square for anything. Well, anything square shaped. So, this brings me to the pattern I’m sharing with you today, the Granny Triangle.
