Granny Crochet Stitch

As I research other shawls that use the granny crochet stitch consisting of the 3 clusters of double crochet, I see that are alternative versions for a wide variety of looks and styles.

For now, I am very happy with this one version that is shown here. Sharing with you this new pattern, which is a first for me. As I learn, I will continue to pass this along so you can learn with me. Let’s learn how to crochet a triangle shawl.

With or Without Fringe

I think that fringe adds a fun embellishment to this scarf. It would look wonderful paired with your favorite pair of jeans and your most comfortable shirt. Just the right amount of style to pull your look together.

On the other hand, I think that the scarf without the fringe would look awesome paired with a white crisp dress shirt and dark pants at work. Either way, you can easily create a fashion statement using your crochet skills.

Easy and Quick Mini Crochet Triangle Scarf

Actually, the very first triangle scarf that I made was this mini scarf in the photo below. It is just perfect for a petite person or young girl. Often, I see shawls and scarves that are perfect, but not the size for my petite daughter or a little girl.

I think that this cute scarf in fun colors is perfect for my first triangle scarf. I ran out of yarn though, or I think I would have added a fringe to this one to make it even more fun looking.

Petite Crochet Triangle Shawl Details

This mini triangle scarf took one full skein of yarn. I just kept crocheting rows until I ran out. The yarn was Red Heart Soft Baby Steps. One full skein of yarn – color – Giggle. You can get that here if you can’t find it in your local yarn stores.

How to Style the Triangle Shawl

Sometimes, it is wonderful to tie a triangle shawl around the neck. However, often, when we want a shawl or a scarf to hang just so, we don’t want to tie it. As an alternative to tying a shawl, use hair clips. I know right?!?

Great Hack to Styling the Triangle Shawl.

This hack holds secure and does not catch the yarn either. Additionally, you can purchase this in a variety of colors. Wondering what it is? A 2-inch hair clip. You can get them very reasonable here.

Just clip them on and reduce the bulk around your neck or style the shawl anyway you want to. Just use the clips to hold in place.

Gauge is not critical, but I had 14 stitches per 4 inches.

Fringe Size

The fringe is cut 7 inches long that ends up being 3.5 inches long folded in half.

Begin with CH 4

Row 1: 

Insert your hook in the fourth CH from the hook and complete 3 DC. Turn

This completes row 1.

Row 2: 

CH 3 (Counts as DC) 2 DC in the same ST. CH 1, 3 DC in the top ST of the last DC of the first row. Turn (2, 3 DC clusters and 1 CH ST)

That is all there is to it for row 2.

Rows 3 and beyond: 

CH 3 (Counts as DC) 2 DC in the same ST. CH 1, SK to the first CH 1 SP and work 3 DC in the previous CH 1 SP. CH 1, SK to the las DC and work 3 DC in the last DC of the previous row. Turn (3, 3 DC clusters and 2 CH STs).

Make this Triangle Shawl as large as you would like it. Continue the stitch pattern in row three making sure to start each row with the CH 3 and 2 DC. Then completing the 3 DC for each CH 1 SP and ending with the 3 DC in the last DC ST of the previous row.

Here is How to Add the Fringe to the Crochet Scarf

The larger shawl is 43 rows. I have chosen not to have the fringe on the last 10 rows. Just because this part is close to the neck and may add too much bulk and bother to the person wearing it.

Therefore, I need fringe for 33 rows.
The fringe is cut 7 inches long that ends up being 3.5 inches long folded in half.

I am using 2 pieces of yarn for each section of fringe and in the front center, I have a section of fringe on the tip and one additional section of fringe on either side of the center tip. Therefore, I need to cut 66 pieces of fringe for each of the the sides and 6 pieces for the added sections at the tip for a total of 138 pieces of yarn. This uses approximately 30 yards of yarn.

I have added the yarn at the end of each row of crochet – If you choose to add more or less, you will need to adjust the number of yarn pieces that you need for this project.

Directions on The Fringe

Cutting the Yarn

I wrap the yarn around something that is sturdy and 7 inches long. For me, this happens to be my Ipad. I don’t have to cut out any cardboard or make any other special template. The Ipad works perfectly. Wrap the yarn for about half of the scarf at a time. Once the yarn is wrapped, you will need to cut the yarn on one end [making sure to hold the yarn securely]. Once one end is cut continue to hold securely and fold the yarn in half. Cut the folded end. You are now ready to begin adding the yarn to your scarf.

Adding the Fringe

Take 2 pieces of yarn at a time. Align them so they are even and fold them in half. Start at the end of a row on one of the sides, insert your crochet hook in a hole in the stitches from below. Wrap the folded half of the yarn around the crochet hook and pull it through the hole in the stitches.

Remove the crochet hook and use your fingers to reach through the loops of yarn that have been pulled through to grab the ends of the yarn that are still being held by your other hand. Pull those ends through the loop. Once the ends are pulled through, gently snug up the knot. Continue to work around the shawl adding the fringe.

Adding Fringe to the Crochet Shawl Video Tutorial

Here is a quick video tutorial on how to cut and add the fringe to a crochet project. Just in case the written directions are confusing. I want to make sure that you are able to do this step of the crochet shawl if you want to add that element.
