Pink Lacy Triangular Shawl

This pretty pastel scarf is perfect for spring, with the delicate lace design. 
I used about one and a half skeins of Simply Soft in Soft Pink with a J hook. 
Ch 5, dc in 1st ch (this forms a "point") 
Row 1: ch3, turn, dc, ch1, dc in the point.
Row 2: ch3, turn, (dc, ch1, dc) in ch1 sp, ch1, (dc, ch1, dc) in next ch1 sp
Row 3: ch3, turn, (dc, ch1, dc) in ch 1 sp, *ch1, dc in next ch1 sp; rep from * to end to last ch1 sp, (dc, ch1, dc) in last ch1 sp

Rep row 3 until desired size. 
Without cutting the yarn, work the edging along the 2 sides of the shawl. 

Row 1: ch1, turn, sc along edges. (3 sts per dc, and 9sc in the beginning point)
Row 2: ch5, turn, sc in 3rd sc, *ch 5, sk 2 sc, sc in next sc; rep from * across to point, (only sk 1 sc, ch5, sc in next sc) three times, then continue with * to end across to end of row
Row 3: ch5, turn, sc in 1st ch5 sp, *ch 1, (dc, ch1) 6 times in next ch5 loop, sc in next ch5 loop, ch5, sc in next ch5 loop; rep from * to end until end of row
Row 4: ch1, turn, sc in 1st ch 5 loop, *ch2, (dc, ch2) in each of the 6 dc from previous row, sc in ch5 loop; rep from * to end until end of row
Row 5: ch1, turn, sc in 1st ch2 sp, *(sc, ch 3 sc ) in each of the 5 ch2 sps, sc in each of next 2 ch2 sps; rep from * to end of row 

Fasten off, and weave in any remaining ends. 
You may have to mess around with the edging, depending on how many rows you have. Just do whatever looks right at the point!
The ruffled edging adds about 3" to the sides of the scarf. Total, the shawl is about 30" from the top to the bottom point, and 65" along the top edge. 
I hope you enjoy this pattern!
Xoxo, Alyssa

  5. Thank you for posting your free crochet patterns I love them and enjoy doing them when im working. Im a certified in home health care aid and helps keep me busy. Im going to do this one for my daughter and its the color that is her favorite. I do hope she wears and appreciates it when im done. again thanks for your post and the time you spend making these for us to be able to make your lovely cloths, I would love to see more dog sweaters though in small med and large as I have three dogs and they like wearing them in the cold wet winters. If you have any would love to see them. Do you ever have videos where you can follow them as you make them sometimes Im better at visual than reading as Im going blind and have to have my computer set up so high at 120% makes difficult to read and crochet at the same time??

    1. You should be able to print it by right clicking on this page and then choosing the option to print. You can also select the pages you want so that you don't have to print pages of comments. I don't have a PDF or any other way to download it.

    1. I would almost call this a full shawl because it's pretty big.

  8. I have several skeins of a soft creamy ivory yarn with sequins scattered throughout. I keep one skein near me no matter what I am working on (mostly afghans). When I came across your pattern, my yarn shouted Me! Me! Me! How could I ignore such a determined yarn plus it will be a lovely change from larger projects. Thank you.

  10. I find these directions very confusing and I crochet all the time. Thanks for sharing because its beautiful. I'm going to have another person take a look at this and see if it is me alone not getting this. I can't get past the beginning. You dbl cr and that is the "point" but it isn't clear where you are going when you say turn. Then you say crochet into point. Is that crocheting in the center of the hole created? Are all the stitches not cr in the stitch but around it?

  11. I was confused also. It took me a few attempts to figure it out. The first dc creates the loop. Row 1 is done in the loop. You now have 2 dcs, where the ch 3 is considered a dc. Now R2 makes sense, where you can (dc, ch1, dc), in the 2 spaces. R3 begins the pattern of the increasing (dc, ch1, dc) at the beginning and end of each row in the space created by the ch3 in the previous row. The stiches dc, c1 are done in each space of the previous row between the increases. R3 is correctly written. Hope this helps.

    1. Yes. I think the pattern should read: end with ch1 and V stitch into the turning chain. This will put an increase on EACH end. Love the simple pattern, as I teach a beginning class and was looking for a lovely summer shawl. Thanks!

  12. I'm almost finished mine, on the third row of the edging now, same colour as the pictures. It looks fantastic and I can't wait to finish and wear it. So easy too, thanks so much!
