Vintage Peach – One Skein Crochet Triangle Shawl

July 24, 2020

Vintage Peach is a light and airy One Skein Crochet Triangle Shawl. The pattern is simplicity at its best! Once you have the first few rows established, it is basically a one-row repeat pattern. When you have completed your shawl, it is the essential blocking that turns it into this beautiful delicate creation! Add a touch of cream for the edging, and you have a Vintage inspired crochet accessory to be proud of! Get the Free Pattern and Video Tutorial below or purchase the ad-free PDF version of this pattern on Ravelry or on Etsy. The PDF is designed for printing.

I used One Skein of a fingering weight yarn to make my shawl. I had been hoarding a very precious skein of La Bien Aimee that I had purchased on a weekend break last year. The beautiful yarn needed a simple stitch pattern that would show the gorgeous flecks of colour at their best. I hope I did it justice! The pattern is very versatile and you can use any yarn you wish. A DK weight yarn (Light Worsted) and a suitable crochet hook, would also be perfect for a fast project and would make a cozy scarf/shawl for winter. You just stop crocheting when your shawl is large enough, or you run out of yarn. Add a contrast border or make your shawl in a single colour.

Vintage Peach uses Treble Stitches (double treble in UK crochet terms) so it is a fast make worked in rows from the bottom up to create a wide shallow triangle shawl. It is suitable for beginners and I have included a Video Tutorial further down the page to help you along. Just make sure to block your shawl when finished, this is where the magic happens!

Instructions for One Skein Crochet Triangle Shawl

Row 5: Ch 4, [1 tr, ch 3, 1 tr] in 1st st, * 1 sc in next ch-3 sp, [1 tr, ch 3, 1 tr] in next sc; rep from * across, ending with [1 tr, ch 3, 2 tr] in last st (top of beg ch 4), turn

Rows 5 – 44: repeat row 5. Fasten off yarn. Continue to border. You can choose to make the border with the same yarn as body of the shawl if you wish or use a contrast colour.

Border

You will be working down the first side of the shawl to ‘peak’ (beg of pattern). You will place each sc in either a ch4 or side post of a tr, as you work your way along the side. I have included a short helpful guide for the edging in the video if you need it

Row 1: Turn piece to work down 1st side, ch 2, picot (see special stitches), ch 2, 1 sc around 1st row end, * [ch 2, picot, ch 2], 1 sc around next row end; rep from * working down the side of shawl to bottom peak, and continuing up 2nd side. Work [ch 2, picot, ch 2] sl st in final st. Fasten off.

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 I recommend that you use a pin on each ‘point’ of the border…….it will make a huge difference to the finished piece! Add tassels if you wish.
