Nightfall – Free crochet pattern for triangle shawl

May 31, 2019
crochet triangle shawl free pattern

Introducing Nightfall – a quick and easy crochet shawl pattern. The shawl is light and airy, perfect for dressing up a Summer outfit. Inspired by Bohemian Festival style with a simple fringing adding the finishing touch.  Drape around your shoulders on Summer evenings for extra style and warmth. The free crochet pattern is a triangle shawl using US treble stitches (double treble stitches in UK terms) and works up fast!

I used 600m of sports weight yarn to crochet my shawl, but you could use any weight yarn and matching hook to make your own version. The design features solid treble stitch rows and mesh rows, which are explained in the pattern, and are easily repeated to make your shawl smaller or bigger in size. You could use a fingering weight yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook to crochet this pattern – simply repeat the solid treble rows and mesh rows until you reach the size you require (or run out of yarn)

The pattern is very versatile and suitable for a confident beginner. Only basic stitches are used in this pattern, but some concentration is required until the row increases are established. I have provided stitch counts for every row to keep you on track, and I suggest you check the numbers on a regular basis (as I found out when I sailed merrily along not checking, and had plenty of frogging back!)

*I used 2 skeins of a gorgeous yarn from Knitcrate that I received in my monthly subscription box. This ultra-soft, decadent yarn from Vidalana was sitting in my stash waiting for the perfect pattern. The colour is a luxurious deep navy blue with gorgeous flecks running through it.  The yarn is superwash merino wool based, and includes some delicate cashmere and silk.

This is an easy/intermediate level pattern. You must be familiar with basic crochet stitches and techniques. Directions written so that they are easy to read and follow. I have included some tips, and photos of the first 12 rows to guide you. Once you have the repeat pattern established, enjoy making this fast, relaxing pattern!

You can make this shawl larger if you wish. If you are using fingering weight/4 ply yarn you may want to continue the pattern until you reach the size you require. When you reach row 32, you can repeat rows 13 – 16 and 17 – 20 again, until shawl is big enough, finishing on a solid row.

If you are using DK weight, or worsted weight, finish on a solid row when size required is reached……the pattern is very versatile!

Fringing

Cut lengths of yarn approximately 28cm/11in. Make fringes using 5 strands of yarn and fold in half to make each fringe 10 strands. Attach fringes evenly (see pictures). Trim if needed.

    Omg! After searching for patterns, I came across yours! You did an excellent job of explaining things. Not the case with other patterns I’ve encountered. ????
    In any case, I’m up to 21 to 24. Should I have 196 tr total from row 21 to 24 or 196 at the end of row 21 (which is a repeat of row 13, correct?)

      Hi Jay! Thank you, that means a lot! You should have 196 tr at the end of row 24. Hope that helps:)

    hello, From the Netherlands I am working on this shawl. I really like the pattern.
    I haven’t finished it yet and of course i have to block it but I am a bit concerned because i don’t really have a triangle shape……..
    The side that should be 183 cm wide is not a straight line. Therefore the shawl looks a bit like a rhombus (hope that is the right word) How could this be? Or will it all be gone after I block? 🙁

    Hope you have the answer!

      Hi Sylvia. I would love to see a picture of the shawl to help you but if you have been following the pattern, it should block to a straight line at the top. This shawl needs to be blocked into a nice shape so it should be fine!
