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.
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.
4 stitches per inch.
