Granny Triangle


Make a slipknot, ch6

Row 2

ch5, turn, dc3 in ch1-sp, ch1, [dc3, ch2, dc3] in ch2-sp, ch1, [dc3, ch1, dc] in last sp

We use the chain 5 to replace a double crochet and chain 1, which is mirrored for the end of the row.

Note: The bolded stitches denote the middle corner of the triangle

Row 4

ch5, turn, [dc3 in next ch1-sp, ch1] 3 times, [dc3, ch2, dc3] in ch2-sp, [ch1, dc3 in next ch1-sp] 2 times, ch1, [dc3, ch1, dc] in last sp

Rows 6-18

Repeat the row before with an extra dc3 in next ch1-sp, ch1 before the middle corner and ch1, dc3 in next ch1-sp after the middle corner.

Continue doing these rows until the triangle is big enough to wrap over your head.

Now, we’ll work into the spaces along the long side of the triangle.

Then, we’ll do the other strap.
