Sure, here’s a simple crochet triangle shawl pattern for you. This pattern is great for beginners and creates a lovely, lightweight shawl perfect for cool evenings or adding a stylish accessory to your outfit.

Materials Needed:

  1. Yarn: Choose a yarn of your preference. Lighter weight yarns work well for a delicate shawl. You’ll need around 400-600 yards, depending on the size you desire.
  2. Crochet Hook: Select an appropriate crochet hook for your chosen yarn. Usually, a hook size recommended on the yarn label is a good starting point.

Abbreviations Used:

  • ch: Chain
  • dc: Double crochet
  • sk: Skip
  • sp: Space
  • sl st: Slip stitch



  1. Start by making a slip knot, then chain 4. This chain will act as your first double crochet and the turning chain.
  2. Make 2 more double crochets into the fourth chain from the hook. You now have a cluster of 3 double crochets, which forms your starting triangle.
  3. Turn your work.

Row 1:

  1. Chain 3 (counts as the first double crochet here and throughout), then work 2 more double crochets into the same space as the turning chain from the previous row (the top of the first cluster).
  2. This creates a new cluster of 3 double crochets. This is the pattern for increasing in every row.
  3. To continue, chain 1, and then work 3 double crochets into the space between the clusters in the previous row (the center of the shawl).
  4. Chain 1 again, and work 3 double crochets into the last space (the top of the turning chain from the previous row).
  5. Turn your work.

Repeat Row 1:

  1. Continue repeating row 1 until your shawl is the desired size. Keep in mind that the shawl will grow wider with each row.
  2. To finish, cut the yarn, leaving a tail for weaving in, and fasten off.


  1. Weave in all loose ends.
  2. If you like, you can add a border of your choice. A simple single crochet or shell border can add a nice finishing touch.
  3. Optionally, you can also add fringe to the two shorter sides of the triangle for a decorative look.

That’s it! Your easy crochet triangle shawl is complete. This pattern allows for plenty of customization in terms of yarn type, color, and size, so feel free to get creative and make it your own. Happy crocheting!
