Crochet Triangle Scarf Photo Tutorial & Giveaway!

Crochet Triangle Scarf Photo Tutorial & Giveaway!

 Hi & welcome if you’re new here!

This triangle scarf is an easy, beginner friendly crochet pattern. I was itching to use Hobby Lobby’s Painted Canyon colorway and I think it worked up lovely in this pattern. The self striping yarns are such a breeze to work with-no color planning, less ends to weave = win, win!

If you are here to enter the giveaway, thanks for stopping by, scroll down to the Rafflecopter link at the bottom of this post! 

This pattern will give you the triangle scarf size pictured: 23.5″ deep by 50″ long. You can continue the pattern to increase your triangle to a full shawl size. This one was made with 3 skeins of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in Painted Canyon. I think adding another two skeins (with this gauge and hook) would create a comfortable sized shawl. These are so easy to add on to!

I chose to add tassels on my corners, but you could add fringe along the edges or leave it off entirely. Isn’t that the beauty of crochet-customizing it to your liking.

Rows 4-33:

Continue to repeat: Ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), *{3dc, ch 1 in next ch 1 spc}, repeat from * until the ch 2 spc (tip), then *{3dc, ch 2, 3dc in the ch 2 spc of the tip}, then continue to repeat *{3dc, ch 1} in each ch 1 spc, dc in 3rd ch of ch 4, turn. (Row 4: 8 grannies & 2 dcs, Row 5: 10 grannies & 2 dcs, Row 6: 12 grannies & 2dcs… Row 33: 66 grannies & 2 dcs) Each row will increase by 2 grannies.

Finish off by weaving in ends and trimming any excess.


For the tassels I cut about 24 pieces yarn 12″ long for each corner. I laid one longer piece of yarn out and placed the 24 pieces of yarn on it, then used the single piece to tie a knot and secure the yarn together in the center. I threaded the tied end up to tie it on to the scarf. Then I used the other end to wrap around the top of the tassel to form the bulb.

If you’d like to add fringe, I did a little photo tutorial on my Veneto Fringed Scarf pattern.

I hope this tutorial was helpful! Please ask if you have any questions!
