Sharing is caring!

Sharing a new & free crochet shawl pattern: the Whimsical Woods Triangle Shawl. This lace shawl features a repetitive and easily memorized lace stitch pattern. If it looks too hard, don’t worry. The stitches used are mainly double crochet and, chain stitches. I invite you to see for yourself.

Asymmetrical Crochet Triangle Shawl

This shawl is worked on an angle. One side stays straight, while the other side has the increases. The yarn itself is variegated with gorgeous colors. Achieve this beautiful and whimsical look with easy double crochet and chain stitches. When the yarn changes color throughout the skein that means less yarn ends to weave in.

Same Pattern with a Different Border

This asymmetrical crochet shawl pattern is the same one that I used for the Any Season Shawl. The only difference is the yarn itself and the lacy edge that is added to one side.

The yarn used is from the Red Heart Unforgettable yarn collection. Recently, I made another crochet pattern using this same exact yarn. It was the Secret Pathways Triangle Poncho.

Lacy Crochet Border with Ease

In the photo above, if you look closely, you will notice that only the bottom edge of the crochet shawl is lacy. That is achieved by chain stitches and single crochet. The other two sides do not have the lacy border. It is just one more method that is used to create depth in this easy crochet pattern. In the written pattern, I have included photos of each row of the lacy border to help you see how easily that is achieved.

Measurements

At the widest part of the shawl, it is approximately 44 inches wide.

The length is approximately 60 inches long.

Note: the lacy border adds 1 and 1/2 inches to the shawl. I have included that in the measurements above.

Gauge

4 stitches per inch.

Lacy Crochet Border for Scarf

I think this is just the right amount of lace to add texture and a feminine touch to this versatile triangle scarf.

End the shawl itself on the increasing side. That is the edge that you will be crocheting the lacy border on.

Begin Lacy Border – After the 3 DC in the last ST. do not cut off yarn. Continue onto the lacy border.

Row 1 Border

CH 3, SC into the same ST as the last 3 DC were just worked in. Continue working on the side of the shawl [CH 3, SC into the Stitch where the previous for ended with a 3 DC in the ST.] repeat this through to the end ST., Turn.
