Crochet Triangle Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®


Triangle = 8 in. [20.5 cm] along each side with larger hook. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Dc3tog (dc 3 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

TRIANGLE (make 72 - 52 with A, 20 with B)
Ch 5 with larger hook; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), 3 dc in ring, ch 2, (4 dc in ring, ch 2) twice; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Rnd 2: Ch 3, turn, (3 dc, ch 2, 4 dc) in first ch-2 sp (corner made), ch 2, *(4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc) in next ch-2 sp, ch 2; rep from * once more; join with sl st in top of turning ch.
Rnd 3: Ch 3, turn, 3 dc in first ch-2 sp, ch 2, *(4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc) in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, 4 dc in next ch-2 sp, ch 2; rep from * once more, (4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc) in next ch-2 sp, ch 2; join with sl st in top of turning ch. Fasten off.

Refer to diagram for arrangement of Triangles into strips. From wrong side, with A and smaller hook, sl st Triangles together, working through back loops only (to form 8 strips). Sl st strips together in same manner.
From right side with larger hook, join A with sl st in any st along outside edge.
Rnd 1: Ch 3, dc evenly around Afghan working dc3tog in each corner; join with sl st in top of beg ch-3. Fasten off A and join B.
Rnd 2: With B, ch 3, dc in each dc around, working dc3tog in each corner; join with sl st in top of beg ch-3. Fasten off.

Weave in ends.

Crochet Triangle Afghan Reviewed by KATHERINE STRICKLAND on 2011-01-01 ****
I made this blanket a couple of years ago for my goddaughter. I used lime green and black and it came out fabulous! I am currently making triangles with scrap Homespun yarn to make this same blanket.

It is tedious putting all the rows together, but worth it with the finished product.
