Introducing Wild Teasel, a Free crochet pattern for a large asymmetric shawl using two balls of a gradient yarn. I used two contrasting balls of Stylecraft Dream Catcher DK, a lovely gradient yarn with amazing bright colours!
You could use any gradient yarn of your choice to make this free crochet pattern……or have a look through your stash.
Crochet Triangle Shawl Details
This is a simple and easy crochet pattern which draws the eyes to the vibrant colours, and the cute tassel fringing totally finishes it off.
The pattern uses basic crochet stitches. You will only need to know the double crochet and the single crochet stitch.
You will carry your yarn up the side as you crochet so you only have to weave in two ends when you’re finished.

- Gauge is not important. To achieve a light drape tension, I suggest you use a hook one size larger than recommended for the yarn you have chosen. Make a swatch of the first 8 rows to test your hook size.
