How to crochet a right triangle



Hello Crochet Mixers in my last post I gave you a little insight on affordable yarn on and offline. I hope it helped , I wanted to help people who may live in small towns ( like myself) or may not have the means to get the quality of yarn you are looking for. This factor makes the internet highly effective. There is no limit to the quality of yarn you can get, which is amazing. In that sense, I love the endless possibilites that the internet gives deprived crochet artists. Please read my post and tell me how you liked it.


I began my blog with total concentration on basic shapes. I have elaborated on the circle and triangle in prior posts and encouraged my followers to use my free pattern to learn the fundamentals of crocheting those shapes. I know you are busy but please, stop by and take a gander.


I am not finished with the triangle yet, I still have another pattern for you guys. In the last post I crocheted a isosceles triangle which looks something like this: I hope that my instructions were clear enough, because it is very easy to confuse people. Especially, when you do things very unorthodox like myself, hehehe! Now we are going to concentrate on the right triangle. In all actuality, the two triangles are something alike, but the way you use them may be different.


Basic differences between the crocheting isosceles and right triangle


I told you that two triangles make a square, which is not true all of the time. When two isosceles triangle are sewn together they make more of a rectangle shape, because the isosceles triangle is more of a cone shape, which makes it kind of oblong. That is probably why the foundation chain is different. I start out with a 3 stitch cast on with the isosceles, with the right triangle I cast on 4 stitches to begin!


So today we will be crocheting a right triangle (technically an isosceles right triangle, but this is not physics) and hopefully you will grasp the basic differences and create your own pattern. Please send me your lovely pics and feel free to as me ANY questions about the pattern. Oh wait, before you start I have to say that I crochet this triangle using the front and back loops. Even though it is not necessary that you do the same, It will look more like the picture is you use both loops.


So without further ado my right triangle pattern, enjoy! Hey meet me here next week for my two cents on squares.


Build your crochet arsenal on a shoestring budget , Post 2 : Finding affordable yarn

Last week I started a series of articles called,” How to build your crochet arsenal on a shoe string budget”, and my major focus of that article was crochet hooks. In that post, I encouraged my readers to make their own crochet hooks and even tried to expand their thoughts on how to parlay it into their own hook business.

I asked my readers to go on Amazon and other business websites,who are known for selling crochet items, and take note of the top wish listed crochet hooks. I wanted them to get a basic consensus of how many wooden crochet hooks are in the top 20! 50!100! Please feel free to contact me with your results and opinions. Continue reading

Crocheting circles and increasing in round

Hello, Welcome to The Crochet Mix, last week was my first week at blogging, and I was very excited the response to my first post. I just wanted to say hello to The Mix’s new family members and tell them to please keep in touch. I look forward to your insight.

Last week, I briefly touched on circumference , crocheting in rounds, and increasing. It is important to me that you get a better idea, so I created a pattern based on the 10 stitch increase per row method that I mentioned in my last post.

I wanted to share this pattern to hopefully change the way you think of crocheted circles, with extreme emphasis on creating different sizes. In addition ,this is an important step in not only crocheting hats but different household items like hampers, place mats, candy dishes, small chamber pots, etc. There is a business in that alone, if that is the avenue you wish to travel.

Two colors are used , but if you don’t want to use to colors that’s okay. Please crochet along!! I could always use a buddy.
