I’ve been sitting on this pattern for a while and I’m so happy to finally share it with you!
This triangle scarf (or shawl) was made for my mother in law this past holiday season. Since I gifted it, I made myself one because I loved it so much and so I could write up the pattern for it!
Initially, I wanted to crochet myself a triangle scarf with a different type of yarn. I was looking for an ombre or self striping yarn, but in the end I loved all the neutrals together so much so I stuck with those!
For this triangle scarf, I used a weight 3/DK yarn. I don’t typically use weight 3 yarns because they don’t come by often in the big box stores in the states. I found some yarn at Michael’s and it looked promising, so I gave it a try!
I used Joy DK from Michael’s and I really love it! It’s soft, has a slight shine to it, doesn’t split, and is nice to work with. Another plus is, it comes in beautiful colors! There are also some variegated colors as well.
For the stripes, I did not follow any sort of pattern. I just started to crochet with one color and switched out colors when it felt right to me. Below, I write out how many rows of each color and the order I crocheted them in. However, you can follow any kind of stripe pattern you’d like!
Crocheting this triangle scarf was pretty mindless once I got into it. It’s an easy two row repeat and although I have how many rows I crocheted, you can very well keep going and make it as large as you’d like!
