Tyra Triangle Shawl, Free Lacy Scarf Pattern







Make a lovely Mother’s Day gift with this Triangle Shawl crochet pattern. The shawl turned out lovely but my photographs don’t do justice to it.
When  I first made it, the shawl turned out small and wouldn’t wrap around my shoulder well. I  made another 10 rows and stitched them together, but it still wasn’t big enough. I added another 9 rows and luckily ended up with the ideal size. Third time’s a charm, right?
I am generally impatient with big items but this one worked up effortlessly. After the first row, there isn’t much counting required.
It is a versatile design that can be worn in many different ways. Wrap it around your shoulder, around your neck or even around your head. The shawl is bigger than you see in the first picture as part of it has been tucked into the dresser.

Materials
1. DK weight yarn
2. Hook F(3.75mm)
3. Yarn needle to weave in the tails

Tassels And Finishing

Weave in any tails left. For tassels, cut 10 strands  9 ½ inches long. Fold at the middle of the strands and pull through the scarf to get a loop, grab all the strands and pull through the loop. Tighten the knot and trim as needed.
I attached the first tassel through the middle of the shell at the vertex of the triangle. I skipped first 4 rows and attached the second tassel to the 5th Row. Starting from this second tassel, skip two rows and attach the tassel to the third row.

    This is very pretty but I think the tassels are a little bit too much for my taste.

    To make a large size version for a big woman, what should the starting chain be? I tried about 60 extra ch, still too small. Recommendations?

    • November 2, 2015 / 11:51 pm

      I guess each 6 chains will add an inch. I hope that helps.

  14. July 8, 2016 / 1:17 pm

    That is a beautiful pattern. Do the instructions include the parts you added on?

    Made it in a deep navy. Altered it a bit by starting with single crochet foundation and edged other two sides with single crochet before adding fringe. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for pattern.

  17. September 22, 2017 / 7:07 pm

    Great pattern! After the first one, I couldn't stop making them. I'm on my fourth one now!

    i made it according to pattern and it ended up being really small. any ideas where i went wrong?

    • April 2, 2018 / 3:21 pm

      Did you check your gauge? It could be your gauge or your yarn. Some DK weight yarns are thinner than others. Try switching to a bigger hook.

      The pattern for gauge swatch will help you make a small piece of crochet fabric in the stitch pattern. You can measure that and see if your end product will be the same size as mine. You can go up or down a hook size to match the gauge.
