With a Fine or a Super Fine yarn, this triangular crochet shawl pattern can be made for the summer or for throughout the year! Crochet it to any size from child to adult and wear it any way you like from a casual summer shoulder wrap to a cozy winter scarf.
Originally I worked this up in a super fine yarn called Loops and Threads Woolike, which gave it a beautiful drape. But a slightly thicker was a bit easier to work with and still gives it a nice fabric that you’ll enjoy wearing with many outfits.
The Stitch Pattern
The stitch pattern is worked with the bead stitch, which is made by inserting your hook and drawing up a loop, the same as for a single crochet. But before closing the stitch, you make a few chains that form a bead-like texture on the front of the fabric.
The solid bead stitch rows are worked in between rows of single crochets, along with an open stitch created by the half double crochet and chain one spaces.
This crochet shawl is started at the bottom point and increased along both sides in each row. It is super easy to adjust in size simply by doing more or less repeats of the pattern rows.
Because it is so easy to adjust in size, you can basically choose any yarn and hook size that you want. However, I find that using thinner yarn like a fine or super fine yarn results in a more elegant fabric with the bead stitch.
For this shawl I chose a solid color. But, if you don’t mind weaving in ends, this stitch pattern looks awesome if you work the bead stitch rows in a different color. Alternatively you could also opt for a self-striping yarn, which would also look great!
