Bonus Pattern – Granny Triangle Bandana

Granny triangle bandana

Remember when Mom (or Grandma) taught you to make your first shawl? You were so proud of that accomplishment, every woman and girl in the family received a shawl that Christmas! Using that same pattern, I worked up some easy Triangle Bandanas using cotton worsted yarn and a size G hook. It’s a quick and easy pattern and only takes about 85 yards of yarn (I used I Love This Cotton). Make a few different colors to wear with your summer outfits. Bandana measures approximately 14″ wide and can be adjusted to any size you need.

Materials: 

85 yards cotton worsted yarn

Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook

Directions: 

Row 1: Ch 4, 3 dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc throughout), turn, 2 dc in first st, ch 1, in ch-2 sp work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in last st of row.

Row 3: Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in first st, ch 1, *work 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1,* repeat until you reach ch-2 space. Work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in ch-2 sp. Ch 1, repeat * to * until the last ch-1 sp, then ch 1, 3 dc in last dc of row.

Rows 4-14: Repeat Row 3 until you get to desired width. At Row 14, bandana measures approximately 15″ wide by 8.5″ deep. Adjust the number of rows for a smaller bandana for a child or a larger one to cover thick hair.

Next Row: Ch 1, turn to work across long edge. Work 2 sc across the edge of each row end. Lay flat and adjust number of sts if necessary. When you get to the end of the row, ch 50 (approximately 10″) for the tie. Fasten off, tighten last ch, and tie a knot close to the last ch. On the opposite side, attach yarn and repeat for the second tie.

Pin sides to purse – Row 24 of side to Rows 29 and 39 of purse, Row 3 of side to Rows 6 and 60 of purse. Leave rows 1-2 and keyring unattached.

Attach CC yarn at corner where purse Row 29 meets side Row 24. With bottom of purse on top of the side, sc through both thicknesses to attach sides to purse.

 

Continue in sc across bottom of purse and bottom of side. Turn to attach other side working through both thicknesses.

 

 

Continue across the edges of Rows 1-5 (single thickness) with 2 sc in the end of Row 1. Continue across top with 1 sc in each remaining loop of beginning ch.

Lay out the pattern piece you created on matching fabric and cut, allowing ½” seam allowance on all sides. Place the bottom of the purse body pattern piece on the fold to create one solid piece for the purse body and 2 side pieces. Cut matching pieces of fusible interfacing. Iron interfacing to wrong side of fabric.

Sew purse body to purse sides and zigzag all raw edges. Place into purse with wrong sides facing and sew in place.

Fold chain in half and attach one lobster clasp to each side. Clip them onto keyrings.
