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 recognisable 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.
It’s all the things you know and love about a granny square…but triangular! This makes it the perfect shape for adding a funky twist to a blanket, making bunting or even a granny square shawl!
