Tyra Triangle Shawl, Free Crochet Pattern, Lacy Scarf Pattern, Triangle Shawl Pattern

Make a lovely Mother's Day gift with this Triangle Shawl crochet pattern. The shawl turned out lovely but my photographs don't do justice to it. When  I first made it, the shawl turned out small and wouldn't wrap around my shoulder well. I  made another 10 rows and stitched them together, but it still wasn't big enough. I added another 9 rows and luckily ended up with the ideal size. Third time's a charm, isn't it? I am generally impatient with big items but this one worked up effortlessly. After the first row, there isn't much counting required. It is a versatile design that can be worn in many different ways. Wrap it around your shoulder, around your neck or even around your head. The shawl is bigger than you see in the first picture as part of it has been tucked into the dresser.

1. DK weight yarn
2. Hook F(3.75mm)
Yarn needle to weave in the tails

8 Rows = 4 inches
3 shells = 4 inches long

Takes around 530 to 540 yards. You can reduce up to 80 yards from the total yardage if you do not intend to add the tassels.

Last Row: Sl st into the first 2 chains, 5 dc in next sc, 1 sc into the third chain of next the ch-5 loop. Fasten off. 

Tassels And Finishing

Weave in any tails left. For tassels, cut 10 strands of 9 ½ inches length. Fold at the middle of the strands and pull through the scarf to get a loop, grab all the strands and pull through the loop. Tighten the knot and trim as needed. I attached the first tassel through the middle of the shell at the vertex of the triangle. I skipped first 4 rows and attached the second tassel to the 5th Row. Starting from this second tassel, skip two rows and attach the tassel to the third row.

  6. This is very pretty but I think the tassels are a little bit too much for my taste.

  10. Love the pattern. I'm making this right now. Does this need to be blocked?

  11. Love this pattern! thanks for sharing! easy and beautiful - made mine with baby yarn and it came out gorgeous and soft, perfect for the office, got many compliments on it!

  12. To make a large size version for a big woman, what should the starting chain be? I tried about 60 extra ch, still too small. Recommendations?

    1. I guess each 6 chains will add an inch. I hope that helps.

  13. That is a beautiful pattern. Do the instructions include the parts you added on?

  14. Lovely, Thank you very much for sharing! <3

  15. Made it in a deep navy. Altered it a bit by starting with single crochet foundation and edged other two sides with single crochet before adding fringe. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for pattern.
