To some people, there’s meaningful symbolism inherent in a triangle. To others, a triangle is simply an ordinary shape, perhaps not bringing any particular meaning to mind.
Triangles are intriguing to knit and crochet, and it’s fascinating to explore all the different ways you can stack them and make them repeat — not to mention all the different designs, projects and color patterns you can create with them.
If you’d be interested in finding some triangle patterns to work on, we invite you to explore the pattern links we’ve rounded up below.
This pretty triangle features slightly-rounded corners and a scalloped edge. It’s a great choice for projects where a single triangle is desirable — for example, it would make a great coaster if crocheted using appropriate yarn.
This design is part of a pattern collection called Triangle Treasury.

This granny-style crochet motif is a slightly elongated isosceles triangle that’s a bit taller than it is wide — which makes it ideal for using to whip up a bunting or banner for holiday decorating. It also has a gently scalloped edging, which adds to the decorative effect.
If you’re looking for triangles to use for stringing together and hanging over a mantle, or draped in front of the table of honor at a shower or luncheon, or to adorn the banister on a staircase, this pattern is worth a look. I’m sure you could think of additional uses for it as well.
This triangle shape looks dainty and delicate. This is another design that’s well-suited for using to make banners and buntings.
