# How can I get a 120 degree angle with crochet chains?

I am trying to make the edge of a diamond with chains in crochet with no stitches in the center of the diamond but I am unsure of the best way to get a 120 degree angle turn with only chains. I am needing what looks like a cookie cutter outline in the shape of a diamond. Is this even possible? If not, is there a stitch that I can use that will give me a clean looking obtuse angle with relatively few stitches? I need this exact shape with the space in the middle and everything.

• I'm not familiar with the terminology in crochet, and not sure how much this will help, but I'll assume from the question that each loop is called a chain? To get an angle of 120, you would need to create a ratio of adding 4 rows of chains in the distance of 7 chains, and then reversing that at the peak. You'd come sort of close (127 degrees) with 1:2 (add a row for every two chains to the peak, then reverse). May 7, 2022 at 16:58
• @fixer1234 I appreciate your answer but I am looking for a single stitch that can change the direction of my chain, not multiple stitches. I'm basically needing a cookie cutter outline of a diamond. I will change my question to be more clear. May 10, 2022 at 14:13
• If it's just a single row, wouldn't it conform to any shape you put it in? May 11, 2022 at 22:29
• Dylon, I'm going through old questions that never got answered. On this one, people had trouble understanding the requirements, but you sort of suggested in comments that some of the ideas might work. Has the question been overtaken by events or are you still looking for an answer? It seems not really answerable from just the info in the question itself. If you're still looking for an answer, could you do an edit to incorporate relevant clarifications in the comments? (cont'd) Jan 30, 2023 at 5:51
• If you solved it, it would be great if you posted a self-answer with how you did it. If you no longer need an answer, we could just close it to put it to bed. Next time you pop into the site, let me know your thoughts. Thanks. Jan 30, 2023 at 5:51
