Have you been looking for a free crochet shawl pattern?
If you have then this free crochet triangle shawl pattern is for you! I designed this crochet shawl pattern with a beautiful bobble stitch edging to add some flare! This is an easy, meditative beginner friendly crochet pattern! I love creating crochet triangle shawls that can also double as scarves because I always need fashion options!
Design Story and Inspiration
I just love cotton yarns and especially this Comfy Cotton Blend! It is so soft and feels amazing on your skin! So when I wanted to design a new free crochet shawl pattern I really wanted it to feel like it was hugging you! By making the main body of this crochet triangle shawl with half double crochet and chain spaces the fiber became light and flowy. However, I countered that lightness with a crochet bobble stitch for the spine and edging! That helped to give this modern crochet pattern the added weight it needed to give you a good hug.
About the Yarn!
Did you know I love cotton? By now you have probably figured that out…sorry but I just had to say it again! It’s clear why Lion Brand’s Comfy Cotton is a fan favorite and you see it used so much by makers. It comes in a beautiful color pallet of solids and multi-color and you get a good amount of yardage per cake, 392 yards! This cotton blend is a category 3 dk weight yarn, which I feel seems to be becoming more of the standard than worsted weight lately! I love that dk weight yarns work up pretty quick compared to a worsted but the material you can create with a dk is just so much more luxurious!
