Mod Triangles Pillow by Tammy Hildebrand

In our August issue of Crochet World (available here), designer Tammy Hildebrand gives you a fun take on scraps of yarn in interlocking triangles that come together to form a square pillow top. Have I mentioned before all the geometry in this issue??!!

These interconnected triangles are worked off of each other one at a time in strips and in a specific order. It all magically comes together in the end. It’s all highly addictive and this would look just awesome in totally random scraps of yarn. So gather some up and play with these triangles as I give you some photo assistance with bringing them together. Disclaimer: I am summing things up here and giving mostly visuals. Get the full pattern in the issue.

Create the first triangle…

.

For second triangle, work across one side of first triangle…

.

Completed first 2 triangles…

.

Work third triangle off of the side of the second triangle, continue to make first strip…

.

TIP: Work over yarn ends as you go for less weaving in at the end!!

Work corner triangles on ends of strips…

.

Work first triangle of second strip off of side of first triangle…

.

Work second triangle of second strip off of side of first triangle of the second strip…

.

When you get to the end of the row where it meets the first strip, slip stitch into the tip of the triangle on the first strip…

.

.

Work third triangle of second strip off the side of the second triangle, when you get to the end of the first row, skip a row on the triangle in the first strip that is beside where you are working and then slip stitch into the next row on that triangle, then turn and work across third triangle. Skipping a row and slipping builds the row up at the same time you are connecting to the first strip…

.

.

Continue to work triangle in that manner.

.

Once you have mastered the above steps you can whip this piece together in no time! Continue connecting triangles in a similar manner and adding corner triangles to the ends of the strips.

I am sure you will find it very addictive to keep making the triangles. And if you make it completely scrappy, you will have a super unique pillow top!
