How to Crochet the Granny Stitch
The granny stitch is a classic crochet stitch that is widely used and loved by both beginners and experienced crocheters alike.
It is easy to achieve and is often the first type of stitch that a new beginner at crochet learns. It is made up of a combination of double crochet and chain stitches.
Named after its popularity among grandmothers, the granny stitch is known for its simplicity, versatility, and its ability to create beautiful, textured fabric.
When working the granny stitch, it is often worked in clusters of 3 double crochet stitches, followed by a chain stitch. Because of the repetitive nature of this stitch, it makes it perfect for a beginner at crochet.
The granny stitch is essentially a cluster of double crochet stitches worked together in a specific pattern. Traditionally, it consists of three double crochet stitches separated by chain spaces.
This creates a mesh-like fabric with openwork spaces that give the stitch its distinctive look.
Creating the “granny square” motif, which can be repeated to form larger projects such as blankets, scarves, or shawls.
Triangle Crochet Shawl
This shawl is worked from the bottom up with the triangle growing in size with each row. The width of this pattern ends up being double what the length is. It makes for a lovely, light cover up. This could be worn as a sarong on the beach or as a swimsuit cover up.

How to Crochet a Granny Shawl Triangle Motif
This is a straightforward crochet pattern, and it is easy to master. Often, I see a granny shawl triangle pattern starting from the top and working down. With this crochet pattern, you start at the bottom top and work up the shawl. Pairing this crochet stitch with the lovely fingering yarn makes this look and feel so modern. I really love the drape of this.
Color Changes Throughout the Pattern
I made two of these beautiful, lacy shawls and started both yarn cakes in the middle. When using the variegated yarn, keep in mind that as the crochet project grows the number of rows completed with each color reduces.
Therefore, whichever colors you want to show more of in the shawl, that is the color you should start with. I could have started with the outside of the skein which would have more of the darker colors throughout the shawl with the lighter shades being the accent colors.
As you can see, I started in the middle of the skein of yarn and the lighter colors make up more of the rows than the darker colors.

Directions: Heartland Crochet Triangle Shawl
Beginner-friendly crochet pattern
From the tip to the middle this shawl is 42 inches long. The width ended up being double the length at 84 inches.
While gauge is not critical to this pattern, I had 25 stitches to 4-inches.
Blue Shawl: 1 Skein of Hobbi Cotton Kings Twirls Color number 19. This skein had 874 yards. If you are not able to find this yarn locally, you can purchase it here on Hobbii.
Lavender Shawl: 1 Skein of Hobbi Azalea Color Number 08. This skein had 875 yards. If you are not able to find this yarn locally, you can purchase it here on Hobbii.
Sometimes the yarn colors are sold out, if that is the case, these are some other great yarn color choices.
When using thread yarn, the result is a lightweight shawl. However, this can be made in different yarn weights from fingering weight yarn to worsted yarn. Note, it will change the size of the shawl and the texture, drape, and feel.
Crochet Hook Size H 5.0 mm
CH = Chain
DC = Double Crochet
SK = Skip
SP = Space
ST = Stitch
STs = Stitches
While I used one skein of Ombre yarn. It is nice to have just two ends to weave in. However, you can use various yarn colors for a truly unique shawl.
I used a slightly larger hook size from what the package directions recommend for a lacy scarf.
Turn your work after each row.
The chain 3 at the beginning of each row counts as a double crochet.
You will always start with the CH 3, 2 DC in the same ST and end with 3 DC in the last ST. Until you work the border.
Due to the simplicity of this pattern, I did not include the row stitch count beyond the beginning few rows.
This pattern is written in U.S. Terms.
Crochet Pattern Directions:
SK 3 DC (Counts as DC) and insert the hook into the fourth CH from the hook and complete 3 DC. Turn (4 DC)
This completes row 1.
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 Chain Space)
That is all there is to it for row 2.
Row 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 Spaces).
Continue working the pattern repeat for row 3. As the shawl continues to grow in size with each row. In the row repeat, you will continue to add more 3 DC clusters in the CH 1 SP in the rows below due to the additional stitches on the ends of the rows.
With the 874 yards of yarn that I used, I was able to get 70 rows completed.
Once you work this up, you will see just how amazing this simple crochet pattern is and how this drapes beautifully with elegance
Triangle Scarf is Another Great Crochet Pattern for a Beginner
Working this Crochet Triangle Shawl Pattern with a worsted yarn can be done. The results will be a larger shawl if you used the same number of yards.
In another pattern, I used this same stitch pattern and used less yarn, 388 yards. I was able to make a nice size scarf with fringe.
