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.

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.
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.
Directions: “Beginner” Triangle Shawl
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.
Size H Crochet Hook
CH = Chain
DC = Double Crochet
SL ST = Slip Stitch
SP = Space
ST = Stitch
Begin CH 4 SL ST into the first CH. This will form a circle.
CH 3, in the circle, 3 DC, CH 1, 3 DC. Turn
Row 2 and Beyond
CH 3, 3 DC into the same ST. DC in each ST until you reach the CH 1 SP of the previous row. In the CH 1 SP work (DC, CH 1, DC). Then continue on working a DC in each ST across. In the last ST work 3 DC. Turn
I was able to get 55 rows out of this 1 skein of yarn.
