Crochet the Paige Triangle Shawl

I can’t wait to share this Triangle Shawl pattern with you! It’s been a long time coming, too! For this pattern, we used about 2.5 cakes of Lion Brand Mandala or Caron Cakes yarn however, you can also use Bernat PoP! or any other cake or self striping yarn to get the same affect. This would also look amazing with a simple single color or tweed yarn.

With classic simplicity and just a little textured pop, this triangle shawl is very pleasing to the eye, and works up fast! If you would like an ad-free PDF download of this shawl, head on over our Ravelry Store or LoveCrafts Store. Be sure to check out our other patterns on the site!

Pattern Notes:

• Chain 2 counts as a DC

• Size is what you make it! This pattern is pretty simple, just repeat until you have the desired size in mind!

• Pattern is written in American terms.



What You Need:

Mandala Yarn cake (lighter weight yarn), Caron Cakes, or Bernat Pop cake yarn— about 2.5 cakes of worsted weight and about 3.5 of the light weight yarn for adult sizes. You will need less for smaller sizes.

Stitch Markers (optional)

Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Cross St: this is done working in two stitches-*YO, skip one stitch, insert into next stitch, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops, YO, pull through two loops (DC made), YO, working into the skipped stitch, go behind the DC you just made and insert your hook from the front of the stitch to the back (it will feel awkward) and complete DC as described above.
