Brioche Crochet: how to make triangle shape (step-by-step tutorial)



Brioche Crochet is a technique that doesn’t stop to amaze me. With only two colors and routine stitches used, it creates a nice textured fabric. And this fabric is reversible: imitating beloved knitting brioche on the right size, and with a knit look on the wrong side.

After the release of Brioche Waves Blanket, Esja Sweater and Brioche Heart patterns I’ve got a few requests about how to create a triangle shape with crochet brioche. So, here is a tutorial. You can use is for making shawls, for example.

Please, note that crochet brioche consists of two layers. And fabric is getting quite thick. So I suggest fine and soft yarns for wearable accessories.

Pattern Notes


Triangle shape in Brioche Crochet is worked in rows, back and forth, with one color used for each row. The colors are changed every other row in last yarn over of the final stitch – when there are still two loops left on the hook (see photo-tutorial below).

Please, note that work is turned after every two rows (unless otherwise stated in the pattern). So you’ll work two rows on the right side, two rows on the wrong side, and then again two rows on the right side. And so on.

Using this tutorial you can create a brioche crochet triangle in any desired size.
