Crochet Granny Triangle Scarf Pattern | Canyon Scarf

The Canyon Scarf is a classic granny triangle pattern. This top down scarf pattern is an easy and relaxing crochet project.

The simple stitches allows a bright and colorful yarn to shine. Add the tassels for a finished and polished look.

This granny triangle scarf is an easy, beginner friendly crochet pattern. I love how simple stitches pair with colorful yarns for a beautiful result.

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!

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.

For this scarf I use 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 granny triangle scarves 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.

I love how this colorful triangle scarf pairs with the simplicity of a white top. It’s great when the weather is cool in the morning, but you know it’ll be warm by afternoon.

It’s so much fun crocheting with these self striping yarns. I love working through the skeins to see how those colors play out. I don’t know if I could combine colors so well myself.

Materials

#4 medium worsted weight yarn, pictured in 3 skeins of I Love This Yarn in Painted Canyon (100% acrylic, 252 yds/230m, 5oz/142g)

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

Notes

  1. Ch 3 counts as a double crochet, you can also use a ch 3 alternative.

    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.

How do you get your scarf to lay like it does in the picture? I’ve washed mine and even used fabric softener, but it still doesn’t lay like it should. I feel like it’s choking me and it looks like I’m wearing a huge bandana. A video tutorial would be great. Thanks!

Hi Lauren, I'm sorry it's not laying how you want it. It sounds like you've tried all the right things. Making it bigger, might help. Or in future, loosening up the tension some-with a bigger hook. I'll have to see about doing a tutorial on the next one I make!
