How to Crochet the Triangle Post Stitch
I am excited to share a new color work stitch pattern with you today! This stitch uses post stitches and color work to create a neat effect. Be sure to read more to find my inspiration, special features, and of course how to crochet the Triangle Post Stitch!
All right, so let’s learn a bit about how this stitch came about! I first came up with a variation of this stitch when I was swatching for a design for the I Like Crochet magazine! You may remember I recently had a pattern published in their magazine—the Timberlane Cardigan! Well, this stitch uses the same technique as that cardigan does; I just made the triangles smaller!
Overall, I love making this stitch because of how much the triangles POP! The post stitches help create this effect, but two contrasting colors help accentuate the effect. I think this stitch would look awesome in a ton of different color combinations!
If you make this stitch, I would love to see YOUR color combination! Be sure to post pictures and tag me @desertblossomcrafts on Instagram, or post the pictures in my Facebook group!

Also, in case you haven’t heard…this stitch is apart of the Desert Blossom Stitch Along, which is running throughout all of 2019! We are more than halfway through the year, but you can still jump in now if you’d like to!

How to Crochet the Triangle Post Stitch
All right, let’s get started on this stitch pattern!
- To Pin this Tutorial to your Pinterest Boards, click HERE
- To get the PDF version of this pattern (+3 bonus stitch patterns!) click HERE
- To pre-order the ENTIRE Desert Blossom Stitch Dictionary, click HERE
- Stitch Pattern is a multiple of 7+4
- Ch 3 at beginning of rows counts as dc
- Carry both colors throughout the whole square. Whenever you change colors, do so on the stitch BEFORE you need the new color. Simply finish the previous dc by doing the last yarn over with the new color. (Make sure to watch the video for more help with the color changes).
You can potentially use ANY yarn and hook for this stitch. However, here’s what I used:
- Worsted Weight yarn (I used Sugarbush Bold yarn, but you can use any worsted weight!)
- H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
NOTE: For a picture tutorial going along with these written instructions, be sure to view the video above! It will show you pictures to help with any tricky steps. You can pause it at any time if you need to focus in on a given step! Music in the video is credit to www.bensound.com.
