How To Crochet a Celtic Triangle - Yarn Scrap Friday

Another belated Yarn Scrap Friday written crochet tutorial to team up with our video tutorial a few weeks back, this time for a Celtic Triangle!

You can watch the video tutorial below if you like or scroll down for the written version.

For this pattern you will need;

- Any yarn you like! I used two different weights, a thinner DK/light worsted weight yarn in blue and an aran/worsted weight yarn in green, both cotton yarns
- Any hook that is suitable for the yarn you are using. I used 3.5mm crochet hook for both yarn types
- Yarn needle and scissors

This pattern is in US terminology. The easy part is the crocheting, the hardest part is the construction but as long as you can follow which parts go under and which part go over then you should be ok.

The pattern

Step 1

Step 2
*2dc (initially starting in your second st from hook), 1dc in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, 1dc in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, ch3, sl st in top of previous dc, ch2, sl st in same st as previous dc, 1dc in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, 1dc in next 2 sts* repeat from * to * twice more.

Step 3
Fold your triangle as per the diagram, making sure to go under and over at the correct parts. The beginning and ends should end up underneath a length thus hiding the seam. Sl st in 1st dc to join, fasten off using remaining yarn to sew ends together completely. Tie in all tails.

  1. I must step away from the computer now.... I must not give in to the temptation to crochet celtic knots; what would I do with them anyway?

    No, no, it's not working... just one knot won't hurt. Just one knot.... I can always put it on a key or a door handle...
    Or just hang it on a branch.
    No, I'm lost. I must crochet a knot.

    Thank you for the pattern.

  2. I used a variegated yarn to match the colors in a dress and used the Celtic triangle as a modesty insert.

  3. Wonder how this would work up in thread........

  4. Beautifully easy pattern. I made these into a pair of barefoot sandals. I just added a toe loop to one point and laces on the other two points. LOVE THEM!!!!!!!! :-)
