One of my favorite things that I always love to crochet is shawls! Amongst all of the crochet projects that I work on, a good crochet triangle shawl is always a go to for me. This shawl is made of just 2 basic stitches , the chain stitch and single crochet stitch. If you can do those 2 basic crochet stitches, then you can easily make this shawl crochet pattern.

Another wonderful thing about this beautiful shawl is that it is made from a 1 row repeat after the 3rd row. And, that makes it a great project to work on in the car or while sitting watching tv.

It makes for an easy shawl pattern that is great for a new crocheter or an experienced crocheter

About the Design

There are lots of different sizes and different shapes that a shawl can be crocheted in. I always love the basic triangle shape over a crochet rectangle shawl. This is a pattern that could be worked up in any size of a different weight yarn than what the pattern calls for. I love using a worsted weight yarn for this shawl.

My favorite worsted weight yarn to use is Lion Brand Mandala Ombre. The colors work up beautifully and the different color options of this gradient yarn cake are just so pretty when worked up in this shawl crochet pattern.

Here is what Lion Brand Says about Mandala Ombre yarn on their website – ”Mandala Ombré is slightly thicker than the original, spun with multiple plies of premium acrylic, which give it the look and feel of merino at a fraction of the cost.”

You could also use a lighter weight yarn like a dk weight yarn or even a fingering weight yarn to produce a lightweight shawl.

The perfect yarn and simple stitches make for the perfect project to work on anytime!

The stitch that this shawl is made with is called the Moss Stitch, which is also known as the Linen Stitch. This has to be one of my all time favorite stitches!

Things you will need:

  • 3 Skeins Mandala Ombre Yarn in Felicity
  • J / 6.00 mm Crochet Hook
  • Scissors
  • Yarn Needle
  • 6” tall piece of cardboard (for the fringe)
  • Small sized crochet hook (for the fringe, I used a 4mm)


  • Shawl is approx. 70” wide x 32.5” long (without the fringe)
  • The fringe will add 6” in length.


  • 8 st x 14 r = 4” in moss stitch
  • I only counted the sc as stitches
  • Gauge isn’t super important as a shawl can differ slightly in size and still fit.


  • Sc = single crochet
  • T = turn
  • Sk = skip
  • Sl st = slip stitches
  • Ch = chain
  • St = stitch (es)


  • To make the fringe you can use a piece of cardboard that is 6” tall
  • You can make the fringe as long as you would like. I made my fringe 6” long.


With J Hook-

Row 1: ch 2, in 1st ch (sc, ch 1, sc, ch 2, sc, ch 1, sc) You Should have 4 st (I only count the single crochets as stitches)

Row 2: ch 1, t, sc in 1st sc, ch 1, sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, sc in last st (6)

Row 3: ch 1, t, sc in 1st sc, ch 1, * sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1* repeat * to * until you reach ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, *sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1* repeat * to * until you reach the last st, sc in last st (8)

Row 4 – 84: repeat row 3

Or use as many skeins of yarn as you would like to make a larger shawl.

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

You should have about 1/2 of a skein of yarn left for the fringe

You could easily not add the fringe and leave the shawl as is.

To Make Fringe:

Wrap the yarn around the piece of cardboard and cut it across one end to make the pieces of fringe.

Add the fringe to the shawl:

I add 1 piece of fringe to every single crochet & chain 1 space.

Take a piece of fringe and fold it in half. Then take your small sized crochet hook and insert it into the space where you want to add the fringe. Put the piece of yarn on the hook and pull it through the space a little. Grab the 2 ends of the piece of fringe and pull them through the loop. Pull tight to secure.

Repeat around the shawl.
