Next to making baby items, shawls would probably have to be another one of my favorite things that I love to crochet. Granny squares make wonderful blankets, so why wouldn’t a Granny Triangle make a cute shawl?! I’m so happy with how this Easy Granny Triangle Shawl turned out!

The last shawl that I crocheted that I really loved was my Denim shawl. I made it with an Ombre yarn and the colors are stunning! I used one of my favorite stitches, the Moss Stitch to make it. Here’s what it looked like –

I even went all out and added fringe all the way around the 2 bottom edges. It was worth it!

Back to this Easy Granny Triangle shawl though!

I feel like this yarn and the color combination makes for such a classy and graceful look. I already have a Lavender dress that I plan on wearing this shawl with when the weather warms up a little. It matches the purple in the dress perfectly and will look so elegant with it.

The drape factor with this yarn is amazing! It flows just perfect!

The Yarn I used is Yarn Bee Sugarwheel Cotton Sparkle in the color Twirls at Twilight. The cotton yarn makes this a lighter weight shawl, so it would be perfect for Springtime when you just need a little bit of something on your arms, but not too much.

You could also make this shawl a little smaller and make a Granny Triangle Scarf. So many possibilities!

Is it Easy to Crochet a Granny Shawl?

Yes!  This granny stitch shawl pattern is very easy to crochet.  It is a 1 row repeat after the 2nd row, so it really doesn’t get much easier than that.

The granny stitch is basically made up of chain stitches and double crochet stitches, so if you can do those 2 stitches then you can crochet this simple shawl pattern.

Yarn Substitutions for this Easy Crochet Shawl Pattern

I used a #3 light weight yarn to make this shawl and I absolutely love the drape and feel of it!  I’ve had someone mention before that they used a worsted weight yarn to work this crochet triangle shawl pattern up in and it just didn’t have the drape that makes this shawl flow.

If you can’t find the specific yarn that I mentioned above, I’d highly recommend finding another #3 dk weight yarn.  To me the yarn weight is the most important aspect of this easy pattern. Any yarn that is a #3 should work up and have a good drape.

Shawls have always been a crochet project that I could easily sit down and work on.  I especially prefer a triangle shawl to a square shawl or even a rectangular shawl.  Just all the different colors and stitch combinations that you can use and the resulting piece is always so pretty!

And, one of my favorite things about this simple pattern is that the specific yarn that I chose to use, it creates its own rhythmic stripes without having to change yarn colors ever few rows.  Meaning less ends to weave in!  That is always a win in my book!

You could easily use multiple skeins of yarn in different colors if you prefer and stripe the yarn however you would like.  My Denim Triangle Scarf is a good example of this if you would like to see what this stitch looks like in striped colors and in a worsted weight yarn.

  1. Thank you for the video. I will give this pattern a go. I always knit and wanted to try crochet for a long time but the instructions always scared me off. I am clearly a visual learner. Will show you the end results (in a few months).
