Do you have a skein of hand dyed, wonderfully squishy and beautiful sock yarn hanging out in your stash? Then this pattern is for you! One skein is all it takes to make this easy triangle shawl crochet pattern. By using a much larger hook than called for, you are able to stretch how far one skein will take you because the stitches will be looser and farther apart.
I am not going to be reinventing the wheel here. We are basically making a half of a granny square. You could certainly use this “formula” with any hook size and yarn you want depending on the look you are going for. Get creative with it!
This pattern is great for the beginner crocheter looking for something a little more challenging or the seasoned crocheter looking for q quick relaxing project.
In this pattern will show you how I made the scarf pictured, but feel free to use any hook and yarn combination your heart desired.
You could wear this around your neck like a bandanna scarf or even as a shawlette. This worked up rather quickly, you would have plenty of time to make one to wear for Easter or maybe as a Mother’s Day gift! Or both! Spring Fling scarves for everyone! LOL.

Just started this pattern 🙂 Currently have a cardigan I’m also working on, but I’m one of those that loves to switch up my projects haha!
I had this yarn in my stash from Knitpicks — Fingering weight tweed in the color Atlantis Heather which has these gorgeous hues of blues and greens.
I figure this triangle scarf combined with a pair of mustard pants or sweater this Fall would be perfect!! 🙂
Thanks hun for the amazing pattern, it’s so darn cute! <3 I am thinking of adding tassels to the corners as well.
I'll share photos of my progress on my Instagram account @pumpkinsandwool

How many rows for a large person
Hi, beautiful scarf. What brand yarn did you use?
Gail Hatch says
I tried this pattern with a superfine wool and a K hook, the results are an open airly scarf Thank you for sharing.
Hi I’m kinda new to this but in row 3 I don’t have a ch 3 in the middle is that right? Cause in row 4 it asks to…. * until you reach the ch 3 sp?
Help please i think I know how to continue but just need a confirmation. Thank you
thank you for this beautiful pattern. strangely I have some quite old baby yarn that I think is going to work wonderfully for this. I’m going to make some for some of my dgd’s and for the grandson’s wife for Christmas(I’m getting an early start)

I made this scarf with a silk blend yarn as a gift for my daughter. It was a relaxing project and looks beautiful. I’ll make myself one next. I extended the edge a bit.
Thank you so much for this pattern! I’ve thought of making scarves this year as gifts. Normally I make hats, but have done scarves a time or two. I wanted something different this time though and tried another pattern first. It wasn’t as easy to flow as this one is. I like a pattern I can start and go without having to keep a pattern chart nearby. I am excited at how this is turning out. Oh, and if it matters, I’m using Size 10 thread.
What are the measurements?
Mary, the measurements are to however big you’d like the shawl. You can look up general shawl sizes if that’s what you’re looking for, but this pattern is totally a “make it as big or as little as you’d like” to fit the person you have in mind. This is the part I LOVE about this pattern!

Beautiful! I am making one now, using sock yarn and a F hook (3.75mm)
Thanks so much for sharing! Can’t wait to see this finished! It will only be a neck wrap.
Beautiful! Starting it now…Thank you
You’re welcome. Happy Crocheting! ☺
Love this! I’ve got to try it. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome Pamela!

Isn’t this a little gem. I am going to have to put this on my list of things to do. Pinned it too. Thank you so much. And I just love those colors.
This is such a pretty yarn! I love this simple pattern ?
Thank you Amanda ?. This yarn was in my “almost too pretty to use” stash haha. So glad I brought it out, I think it really adds something special to an otherwise fairly plain pattern. ?
I am a sucker for granny square projects, paired with that beautiful colorway…::sighs::… I am in love! Pinned for later.
I am running a year long Granny-Spiration Challenge, and would love if you came and linked up with us 🙂 There’s also a yarn giveaway going on right now. It can be found here: http://eyeloveknots.blogspot.com/2017/03/april-granny-spiration-challenge.html
