Learn to Crochet a 60-Degree Triangle! These motifs can be sewn together to make striking geometric designs. 

These triangles fit perfectly between hexagons, diamonds, or any other shape with 60-degree angles.  See my free pattern & video tutorial for Crochet Hexagons here.

I used these triangles to make my Easy Geometric Backpack.

    What is the best way to make a rectangle with 2 triangles (one at each end) prefer it to start from point of triangle and increase each row forming triangle into rectangle. Hope this makes sense. Thanks just not getting my brain around it.

      Hi Lori. I have not tried making a triangle that way before, so I am not sure what the best way would be. What makes that type of triangle more complex is that the length of your finished rectangle compared to the triangle would determine the spacing and number of increases. I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
