Florentina is a light and delicate Crochet Lace Triangle Shawl made in a beautiful gradient yarn. This pretty shawl works up quickly with an easy 2-row repeat pattern. Add a small fringe for a stylish touch!

Blocking is recommended to open up the stitches in the lace pattern, creating a diaphanous airy shawl.

Stitches

Only basic stitches are used in this crochet triangle shawl pattern but some concentration is required until pattern repeat is established.

The crochet pattern includes written instructions for the first 7 rows. You can also find a video tutorial below.

Pattern written in US crochet terms.

The Yarn

The shawl was crocheted using a ball of Hobbii Twister Summer a lovely cake-yarn I had in my stash. It is marked as a Sportsweight yarn but it feels and works up like a Fingering weight. Most similar weight gradient yarn cakes will have between 800m to 1000m of yarn and work great for this pattern. I used a 4mm crochet hook but you may find a 3.5mm hook more suitable for your tension, especially if you crochet more loosely.

The pattern looks so lovely in a gradient cake yarn but 2 skeins of any fingering weight yarn from your stash would also look beautiful – you can get creative with the way you use the colours! The pattern will work with any weight yarn and matching crochet hook. Once you have the pattern repeat established, you can stop when your shawl is big enough, or you run out of yarn.

Notes (read carefully)

  • Shawl is a top-down triangle design increasing on each side and in the centre
  • Ch 4 at beginning of a row counts as a v-st
  • Ch 3 at beginning of a row counts as 1 dc
  • The shawl can be made larger or smaller by working more or fewer pattern repeats. This may alter the amount of yarn required.
  • Includes written instructions. Pattern written in US crochet terms
  • Gauge is not important.
  • Instructions for rows 1-7 are written out completely. Please read carefully before starting pattern.
  • I recommend you use a stitch marker for your centre stitch every row. It is important to follow pattern carefully for the first few rows and place a marker in the centre stitch when the pattern instructs – in centre sc or centre dc in alternating rows.

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 making sure to place a pin in the centre of each fan on your final row. Leave to dry.

Fringing

Cut lengths of yarn approximately 8in/15cm. Make fringes using 3 strands of yarn and fold in half to make each fringe 6 strands. Attach fringes evenly along each end of shawl, adding a fringe piece to centre of each fan. Trim if needed.
