Learn how to crochet a pentagon in 4 different ways!
Of all the geometric shapes, I feel like the pentagon is the most neglected in the yarn world.
However, there are so many project ideas to make with pentagons, and I cannot wait to share a few with you very soon!
But in the meantime, let’s start by exploring how to crochet a pentagon.
Of course, there is no single or correct way to make a pentagon. Here, I’ll simply share with you my favorite 4 basic patterns.
All the pentagon patterns that I’m sharing here are worked in the round and you can make them as big as you like. All you need to do is to keep repeating the instructions until you reach the right pentagon size for your project!
1 – Classic Granny Stitch Pentagon
The first pentagon that we’ll see is the classic granny stitch pentagon.
The granny stitch is always great fun and a true crochet classic.
You can combine this granny pentagon with other classic granny shapes, such as the square, the hexagon, or the triangle, to make blankets, cardigans, dish towels, etc.
