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.
