15 May Gizeh Crochet Triangle
The Gizeh plateau in Egypt is a small portion of land where world´s most important archaeological site is located. Researchers throughout history have tried to unveil its secrets by developing complex theories in order to explain its origin and meaning. Archaeology, mathematics, astronomy etc., even a possible extra-terrestrial origin, has not been enough to reveal the secret of Gizeh sacred geometry.
One of most interesting research lines understands that Gizeh pyramids are not measurable; but its relations define them. The plateau is an only project, and not the addition of the individual constructions made by each pharaoh throughout time.
Which one will it be the sacred geometry of your next crochet project using Gizeh triangle? A blanket? A scarf? Perhaps a cute top? What said by Planet Crochet inhabitants will be the proper course of action.

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED
Wrap yarn around two fingers, leaving 7cm long tail. Insert hook right to left under the two rows and pick the strand up (the one that leads to the skein), pulling the yarn back under the two rows, YO and pull through the loop (do not count as first stitch). Keep working the following stitches into the ring. Remove the ring from your fingers and pull the tail end to tight the ring.
CHAIN (ABBREVIATION ch)
YO and pull through loop on hook.
SLIP STITCH (ABBREVIATION: sl st)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
HALF DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: hdc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through all 3 loops on the hook in one go.
DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: dc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook in one go (2 loops remain on the hook), YO again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.
INVISIBLE FASTEN OFF
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle. Skip one stitch then insert needle into the next stitch under booth loops of the second stitch of the last round. Next, insert needle back into the same stitch that the yarn tail is coming from but into the back loop only. This creates a closing stitch. Weave tail into wrong side before trimming.
FRONT POST & BACK POST DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: fpdc, bpdc)
The design uses front and back post stitches to create a 3D effect.
Instead of making your stitch through the loops at the top of the stitch, you make it around the post (vertical bar). Everything else stays the same no matter what stitch you are making.
First, you need to know where the post of the stitch is. The post of a stitch is the bottom of the stitch. This part of the stitch forms the body no matter what stitch you are making.
For front post stitches, you insert your hook from front to back to front. For back post stitches, you insert your hook from back to front to back.
In a pattern, you can see these stitches abbreviated with a ‘fp’ or ‘bp’ and then the standard crochet stitch abbreviations “fpdc” or “bpdc”.
Front Post Double Crochet (ABBREVIATION: fpdc):
YO, insert hook from front to the back and to the front again around the post (vertical bar), YO, pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on the hook) and finish a dc as usual.
Back Post Double Crochet (ABBREVIATION: bpdc):
YO, insert hook from the back to the front and to the back side again around the post (vertical bar) YO, pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on the hook) and finish a dc as usual.
- bpdc = back post double crochet
- ch = chain
- dc = double crochet
- fpdc = front post double crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- lp (s) = loop (s)
- rnd (s) = round (s)
- st (s) = stitch (es)
- slst = slip stitch
- YO = yarn over
- Rnd … = At the beginning of each pattern line, you’ll find “Rnd” + a number to indicate which “round”.
- (…) = At the end of each line you will find the number of stitches you should have at end of each line.
- […] x … = When part of the instructions repeat throughout the “round”, it ́ll be placed between brackets x the number of times it should be repeated.
- (…) = stitches between (…) are worked into the same stitch.
- Example: Rnd 01. (3sc) in the same stitch, [2sc, sc-inc] x 2. (11 sts)
LEVEL 2 – EASY
If you are looking for a relaxing project, this is what you want. These patterns are very repetitive. They use basic stitches and easy procedures.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Crochet hook 4.00 mm (G US)
- Yarn needle
- Cotton yarn: light worsted.
- Katia Cotton 100% (100% Cotton), 50g/1 oz. ¾, 10x10cm = 23 sts x 30 rows, 120m (131 yds):
nº 02 (black)
nº 37 (light beige)
nº 09 (dark brown)
nº 54 (maroon)

- Using light worsted weight yarn, finished item will be approx. 11 cm x 11 cm.
- Choose a different yarn weight with the corresponding crochet hook size to make a bigger or smaller version.
- This pattern is written in US terminology.
- When you crochet in closed rounds, you will close each round with a slip stitch into the first stitch of the round. The next round starts with one or more initial chain stitches (know as the “turning chains”) to get the right height for the following stitches and follows the same direction as the previous round.
- Turning chains at the beginning of rows count as a stitch.
