How Do You Crochet a Simple Triangle Shawl?

A simple triangle shawl has a simple construction, and usually will start from the middle top and will be increased in the middle and sides of the triangle.

If you want to try a simple and easy crochet triangle shawl pattern, you should use double crochet stitches. You will find different patterns, using different stitches such as a simple double crochet triangle shawl, a triangle shawl using a granny stitch, or a V stitch.

If you want your shawl to work up quickly, choose a pattern that uses mostly double crochet stitches.

About the Iris Triangle Shawl Design – an Easy Crochet Triangle Shawl

Iris stitch is one of my favorite stitches, it’s a double V stitch, and it has a beautiful texture and works up quickly. I also used the Iris Stitch in a Square in my recent Iris Cocoon Shrug pattern.

This triangle shawl pattern is worked from the top middle out, using the iris stitch, and is increased in the middle and the sides of the shawl. To add some texture to this shawl, we have a V puff stitches row every 11 rows.

The shawl can be worked as big as you would like, by keep repeating the repetition section.


What Type Of Yarn Is Best For Shawls?

For my shawl, I used Scheepjes Whirl which is a Fingering (#1) weight yarn, so if you are looking for Scheepjes Whirl shawl patterns, this one is for you! I enjoyed working with this beautiful and soft yarn, it’s made of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic.

You can use any yarn you’d like, I recommend using Fingering (#1) or Sport (#2) weight yarns, to keep the texture showing.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful design on the blog hop today. I love shawls and scarves made with fingering weight yarn because they’re light yet still warm and soft, with cozy drape. Thank you!

  2. I might be reading this wrong, but the instructions seem to go from row 8 to row 11. I don’t see instructions for rows 9 and 10. Is there something that I am missing?

    1. You were reading it right, I missed these 2 rows.
      The pattern has been updated, thank you for letting me know about it!

  3. You do not have the instructions for Rows 9 & 10. Just FYI

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know, Jan!
      I have updated the pattern.

  4. Hi

    If I want to make my shawl bigger, do I repeat rows 5 to 16 = 4 more times…?? Tks

    1. Hi Pauline,
      Yes, you should repeat rows 5-16 as much as you’d like, and then finish with working rows 5-9.
      I hope it helps 🙂
