Materials:
  • 10.0 mm crochet hook

  • Measuring tape or ruler

Sizing:
  • 55 inches across the top edge of the shawl
  • 50 inches along each side of the triangle
  • Tassels are each 3 inches tall

Instructions for Shawl:

Ch 4 and join the the ch furthest from the hook to create a ring.

Row 1: Ch 3, then in the center of the ring work (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc)

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. In the very first stitch (at the base of the chain 3) work 2 dc. Work a dc in each of the next 2 stitches, then in the corner space, work (2 dc, ch 2 , 2 dc). Work a dc in each of the next two stitches, then work 3 dc in the turning chain space.

*Note: for row 3 and each row after, you'll work it like row two, but adding side stitches to each row. This is how the triangle will grow wider and taller. The points of the triangle are always worked the same.

Row 3: Ch 3 and turn. In the very first stitch (at the base of the chain 3) work 2 dc. Work a dc in each of the side stitches of the triangle, then in the corner space, work (2 dc, ch 2 , 2 dc). Work a dc in each of the side stitches, then work 3 dc in the turning chain space.

Repeat row 3 until shawl is 50 inches down each side and 55 inches across the top edge or until desired length. Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain. Continue below if you wish to add tassels.



Instructions for Tassels:

Cut two pieces of yarn, each about 6-8 inches. Set aside. Wrap yarn around al four fingers for a total of 12 wraps. Thread one piece of yarn into top of bundle and tie securely. Tie second piece of yarn around top of bundle, about 1/4 of the way down, tucking in ends. Cut loops from bottom of tassel. Repeat two more times for a total of three tassels and tie to each of the three points of the shawl. Weave in any ends that remain.
