Easy Crochet Triangle Shawl – Larkspur

June 8, 2020

Larkspur is an Easy Crochet Triangle Shawl, starting at one tip and increasing on one side only. It is a beginner-friendly pattern that is easy to memorise and relaxing to make. The finished result is a beautiful classic shawl! It is perfect for warmer weather when you just need a little something extra. A simple asymmetric triangle construction with a pretty lace pattern makes this shawl fun to make for beginners and experienced crocheters too.

You will love crocheting this easy triangle shawl, and the finished result with the lovely lace design looks more complicated than it actually is! So wearable for any time of the year, this shawl will become a firm favourite in your wardrobe. The pattern is very versatile and you can make it any size you wish. Remember that yarn amounts may vary.

I published Hot Chili a few weeks ago, and you all loved it!  Hot Chili is crocheted with a skein of Fingering weight yarn. Choose one beautiful skein of yarn and finish in a weekend!

I decided to make a similar asymmetrical Easy Crochet Triangle Shawl using the same relaxing pattern.

Larkspur Shawl is crocheted using a gorgeous yarn I received in my Knitcrate subscription box a few months ago. I fell in love with the beautiful blue colour and the soft silk/merino yarn. This project was the perfect design! The yarn is Uru.yarn by Knitcrate – Silk DK Colorway: Enlightened – 85% Merino/ 15% Silk/ 100g/ 274m and I used the 2 skeins I received. You can use any lightweight/DK yarn and you will need approximately 600m.

Gauge

5 shells x 16 rows = 4” [10 cm] in pattern blocked

Gauge is not really important. To achieve a light drape tension, I suggest you make a swatch of the first 5 rows and see what hook size works best for you. I used a larger than recommended hook for my shawl.

Notes (read carefully)

  • Shawl starts at one end. Working in rows, increasing each row on one side only
  • Ch 2 at beginning of a row does not count as a st
  • Ch 5 at beginning of a row counts as 1 tr, ch 1
  • The shawl can be made larger or smaller by working more or fewer pattern repeats. This will alter the amount of yarn required.
  • Includes written instructions and a crochet chart
  • Written in US Crochet Terms

Finishing

Weave in all loose ends. Soak your shawl in lukewarm water and gently wring in a towel. Lay project out to finished size and pull gently into shape. Pin in place and leave to dry. Take your time pinning finished shawl, and use a pin on each ‘point’ of the shells……it will make a huge difference to the finished piece! Add Tassels for a finishing touch if you wish.
