With classic simplicity and just a little textured pop, this triangle shawl is very pleasing to the eye, and works up fast!




Light weight yarn: 17 DCs and 8 rows = 4×4” square.
Worsted weight yarn: 14DCs and 7 rows= 4×4” square.


  • 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.


DC—double crochet
HDC—half-double crochet
YO—yarn over
XS—Cross stitch
BS—bean stitch
SS—slip stitch
SC—single crochet


  • Bean Stitch: this is done with half-double crochets that are unfinished until the end—*YO, insert hook into indicated stitch, YO, pull up a loop. Repeat from * a total of 3 times. YO, draw through all loops on hook. Chain 1. Stitch made. (see figures 1 & 2)
 Figure 1 (Bean stitch started) Figure 2
  • 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. Criss Cross stitch made. (see figures 3-5). Video here.

Rows 7-8: Repeat row 3. (40, 46 dc)

Row 9: Repeat row 4. (22 XS, 8dc)

Row 10: Repeat row 5. (24 BS, 8dc)

Row 11: Repeat row 6. (62dc) Do not fasten off.

Work the repeat pattern (rows 3-8) until piece measures as big as you require


Turning work so that you are now working along the top edge of the shawl and work 2sc into each ch2 or dc along, also working 2sc into the center where we started the pattern. Once you reach the end, simply fasten off.


For a finishing touch, you could add tassels or pom poms to the points of the shawl or fringe all along the edges. Or simply leave it clean!

One thought on “Triangle Shawl Crochet Pattern

  1. Tracy McDonald

    Ah… That is a “Puff Stitch”, 1 of 2 types. Your shawl is stunning.
    The “Bean Stitch” has strands which lay “horizontally”. Make a DC in a st, yo, wrap hk arnd the “post” of DC, (3 to 5 times, [depending on the fullness you desire.] making a yo each time your hk goes arnd the post.), pull yarn thru all except the “Last-2-Loops”, yo, pull yarn thru last 2 loops. (This “locks” the stitch and provides a working stitch for the next row.) SKIP one stitch on your main piece of work, DC in next st., continue for as far as desired till you want another “Bean Stitch” in your design. (I have used this with DC’s only.)
