“Beginner” Triangle Shawl

Sharing is caring!

This “beginner” triangle shawl is designed to let the beauty of the yarn shine through. Once you learn the first two row of stitches, you will be able to complete this lovely wrap. So easy, even if you are a newer crocheter, I urge you to give this pattern a try.

One Skein Triangle Shawl Pattern

This pattern is just perfect for a beginner at crochet. Once you get started, the pattern is a one row repeat.

The beauty of this shawl is that it is a one row repeat that you can keep repeating until the shawl reaches your desired size.

Sometimes it is fun to dress up a triangle shawl with a tassel. Since I used a fine yarn, this is a lovely summer piece. Use a thick yarn and it becomes a warm cover up for those colder days.

Let the Yarn Shine Through

Making a shawl is a great way to use a yarn cake. I always find it exciting to see what color comes next as I crochet a piece with yarn that has various colors throughout. This particular yarn is actually more of a thread.

There are four threads woven together in a yarn cake. Here is one cake that you will not gain weight on! However, this would also lend itself well to one of those shawl in a ball skeins.

The shawl skeins of yarn usually have 488-512 yards, which will give you a nice size shawl. However, this particular yarn that I used today has a whopping 874 yards!

The yarn I used to day is Hobbii Cotton King-1 skein. Another yarn that would look great with this pattern is Red Heart’s new It’s a Wrap yarn.

Yarn Color Transitions

I love how this yarn gradually transitions from color to color. This yarn is made up of four lightly twisted threads and creates a wonderfully light shawl.

This yarn is absolutely beautiful, but you could also easily make this shawl with any yarn you like.

Lightweight Yarn for Styling Options

This yarn is very lightweight lending itself well for a wide variety of styling ideas. Here are a few ideas; this can be a beach cover up, use a pin or shawl clip and turn this into a poncho, or scrunch this up a bit and wear it more as a scarf. You can find some pretty shawl clips here.

Video Tutorial

I really wanted to use this shawl as a way to teach everyone something new. If you are an experienced crocheter looking for a simple pattern, this shawl will be a pleasure to make. The video links for both a left and right hand crocheter are below the written pattern.

Gauge and Size

The gauge is not super important because you can truly use any yarn and just stop the pattern when your shawl is big enough. My shawl ended up measuring 92 inches wide from corner to corner and 33 inches from top to bottom.


Hobbii Cotton Kings Twirls 1 skein. However, this 1 skein is a whopping 874 yards so there is enough to make a large shawl.

This is such a nice light weight neck shawl, perfect for what I want. As a beginner (teaching myself since April 2020), it’s so fantastic that lovely people like you actually take the time to do great video tutorials, as newbies aren’t always good with just written patterns. I’m going to start mine today. Thank you so much for sharing & teaching. Can’t wait to show mine off when finished. : )

Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know. Glad to have another crocheter enjoying the craft. Stop back often and find new patterns as you continue to grow your skills.

This is my first triangle shawl, and I honestly chose it because you offered left-handed directions on a video. Thank you for that, by the way. I’m struggling to get the base to remain in a straight line when I do the multiple DCs at the beginning and end; they want to “curve”. Any ideas what I’m doing incorrectly? I’m making this for my 91-year-old mother, so need to finish it sooner than Thanks so much for the lovely pattern.

Maybe your stitches are too tight? Or maybe are you adding extra stitches? Can you take a photo and email it to me? I will see if I can tell from a photo what might be going on. Thanks for reaching out. here is my email: I look forward to hearing from you vicky

Is the shawl in the pictures the same as the one in the pattern? I am currently working on it and mine looks nothing like it. Thank you!

Yes, I use my actual photos of what I have made. Did you try watching the video? You can always email me with a specific question if you have one that I could help with.
