How to Crochet the Granny Stitch

The granny stitch 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.

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.

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.

It is light enough to wrap over your shoulders to take the chill off or wear on a hot summer day as a gorgeous accessory. Make this in white and it could be a very pretty shawl for a bride to wear.

This crochet pattern is an easy one to master with the repeating stitches throughout the rows. I love crochet patterns that do not require much counting, as this allows me to binge watch some movies with my family.

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.

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.

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.

Sometimes the yarn colors are sold out, if that is the case, these are some other great yarn color choices.

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.

Row 3 and beyond:

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 the fiber drapes beautifully.

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.
