Rose Party Triangles

The Dutch version of this pattern can be found here.
(you can use any kind of yarn/hook size – US terms are used – pattern update 15/7/2017)

round 1: in a magic ring (or chain 4, make a ring by slip stitching in to the first chain), you crochet 6 single crochet stitches, close the ring with a slip stitch into the first single crochet stitch; (only if you’re using multiple colors, you fasten off now, and sew in your ends);

round 2: (if you’re using multiple colors, you’ll attach your new color in any single crochet stitch with a slip stitch); * chain 4; in the same stitch you crochet: 3 (unfinished !) treble crochet stitches; unfinished treble crochet stitches are made by leaving the last loop of every treble crochet stitch on your hook. When you have 4 loops on your hook, pull your yarn through all 4 loops, chain 4, slip stitch back in the same stitch: (first) petal is done! Now slip stitch into the next single crochet stitch **, and repeat from * to ** 5 more times.
You should now have 6 petals – the flower is ready; fasten off (whether you’re using multiple colors, or just one color);

round 3: attach your yarn (new or same color) in the top stitch of any flower petal, chain 1 (counts as 1st single crochet), * chain 5, single crochet into top of next petal **. Repeat from * to ** all around, slip stitch into the 1st chain (the one that counts as a single crochet); do not fasten off.

round 4: * into first/next loop (= 5-chain-space), you crochet: 2 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 double crochet, 2 treble crochet; 1 double treble in the single crochet of the previous round (the one that sits right in between two 5-chain-spaces), and then into the next 5-chain-space: 2 treble crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, 2 single crochet; 1 single crochet into the single crochet of the of previous round (= the stitch in the top of next petal) **. Repeat from * to ** all around, slip stitch into the 1st single crochet made in this round; do not fasten off.

round 5: chain 3 (counts as the 1st double crochet), 1 double crochet in every stitch made in round 4, and 5 double crochet in each of the three corners (= in the double treble crochet from the previous round); repeat all around, slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the 1st chain 3 (that counts as the 1st double crochet).
You should count 13 double crochet stitches on each side, and 5 double crochet stitches in each corner; fasten off, sew in ends: 1st little party triangle ready!
If you want your Rose Party Triangle a bit bigger, you can continue with:

round 6: chain 3 (counts as the 1st double crochet), 1 double crochet in every stitch made in the previous round; in all three corners you crochet 1 double crochet-2 chains-1 double crochet (in the middle/3rd double crochet of the 5-double crochet stitches made in all 3 corners of the previous round); repeat all around, slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the 1st chain 3 (that counts as the 1st double crochet).
You should now count 19 double crochet stitches on each side, and three little 2-chain-loops in all of the 3 corners. Fasten off – sew in your ends.

To make the garland I started with a chain of 60 stitches, and attached my flags to the chain by slip stitching into the top of the dc’s on one side. The first and last stitch I started slip stitching in, were the middle dc’s of the 5 dc’s in each corner. In between my flags I chained 10, and ended with another chain of 60 stitches.

If you want, you can embellish your motifs with a different colored round of surface stitches, like I did on some of mine.

The colorful one was crocheted with Katia Capri and ByClaire (100% cotton) and a hook size 3,5 mm – they measure 11 cm on each side.maRRose - CCC - Rose Triangle for bunting-22The motifs that have an extra round (= round 6) were crocheted with Durable Cosy Fine and a 5,5 mm hook – they measure 18 cm on each side.

I highly recommend blocking your triangles, and after that: they’re ready to make any room or outdoor space a little more festive! Happy making, and enjoy!maRRose - CCC - Rose Triangle for bunting-31
