How did I come up with the name of this shawl?
As I was admiring the lovely colors showing up as I worked through the skein of yarn, I kept thinking about woods and faeries. It just kept bringing beautiful images to mind. To help you visualize what I was thinking, as I crocheted this lacy shawl, here are a few photos to help you.
The trees in the woods are just gorgeous and the sun glinting through the trees highlights the colors even more. See the resemblance in the shawl?
This photo is a closeup of a few tree branches and I could just see a cute little faerie sitting on there wings and all. I know, and active imagination right?
I added a butterfly pin as an accessory to this lacy shawl. Sometimes, it is just the right addition to create the look you want. This pin also helps hold the shawl in place too. The butterfly pin reminds me of a woodland faerie. There are quite a few beautiful pins to choose from here.
Simple Triangle Shawl
This crochet pattern is so easy, it really can be your first triangle shawl pattern. The best part of this wrap is that it is a one row repeat. You can keep repeating until you reach the desired size or until you run out of yarn.
Shawl in a Ball Yarn
While I made this with one skein of yarn, you can really use multiple skeins of yarn if you choose; changing colors as you desire. The yarn used for this pattern is called Graceful Green. It is a shawl in a ball yarn from Lion Brand Yarns. Because there is 481 yards in this one skein, there was no need to join addition yarn skeins. This means just two pieces of yarn to weave in. Yay!
The colors of this yarn throughout are just lovely how they transition. While this yarn is on the thin side, I think that is part of the beauty of the end result. The drape of a light handmade accessory like this is so wonderful.
I really wanted to make sure that if you were a beginner at crochet that you could make this shawl/wrap. Therefore, I made a video tutorial to help understand the pattern. Also, if you are new at reading a crochet pattern, this might help you too. However, if you are an experienced crocheter looking for a simple pattern, this shawl is one you should check out.
The video links for both a left and right hand crocheter are below the written pattern.
Hole Size in the Middle of the Shawl
Notice the hole in the mid-point of the shawl? Normally when I see crochet triangle shawls, that hole is a little larger. I wanted to have a bit smaller hole; therefore, I used a chain 1 in that space. However, if you would rather have a larger hold size in the middle, just crochet a chain 2 there instead of the chain 1.
Choosing a Crochet Hook Size
For this crochet pattern, the yarn package called for a J crochet hook. That is what I used today. it gives the shawl a bit more lacy look to it. Additionally, it is much easier to get your hook into the stitch spaces.
You can certainly use a smaller crochet hook; however, you will have a bit smaller shawl in the end.

Gauge and Size
The gauge is not super important because you can truly use any yarn and just stop the pattern when your shawl is big enough. My shawl ended up measuring 64 inches wide from corner to corner and 23 inches from top to bottom. Remember, if you want a larger or smaller shawl, reduce or add to the number of rows.
