How to crochet a triangle motif
Each side of the triangle will measure the same and it’s important to keep an eye on the stitch count along each side so that it does not go out of shape. I always block and steam triangle motifs, which makes them much easier to join.

    Joining triangles
    When you have made all the triangles for the blanket, first sew in all the ends, then block and steam each triangle on the wrong side before laying out the blanket design. The easiest way to join lots of triangles is first to join them in strips and then to sew the strips together to make a larger piece.

    Lay out all the triangles on a flat surface, ensuring that you place the colours randomly, and then set them out in strips as in the diagram. Join the triangles together in strips using the overcast joining method, with right sides together. Label each strip in rows 1 to 9 (or up to the number you have in a row).

    When all the strips are joined, join the strips to each other to create the blanket – making sure that the points of each set of triangles meet in the centre.
