About this pattern

I wanted to create a simple triangle shawl that is beginner-friendly pattern and suitable for beginners who don’t have that much experience yet. It’s entirely made with double crochet stitches and chains and has a lot of open stitch work.

There are only 8 rows that need to be repeated; 6 rows are made out of chain spaces, and 2 rows are made with double crochet stitches. That’s all!

The border is made out of little shamrocks or clovers. You can choose whether you want to make a shamrock (which has 4 leaves) or clover (which has 4 leaves). It’s a fun border to make and you can find step-by-step instructions in the video below.

About the yarn

For this crochet scarf I used a Scheepjes Whirl in color ‘Key Lime Pi’. One yarn cake has a length of 1000m / 1094 yds and a weight of 220g/7.94 oz. I really love how the colors change in a very subtle way. It creates such a beautiful gradient effect! With this yarn you don’t have to worry about weaving in ends or picking matching color combinations.
