Easy Crochet Mesh Triangle Shawl Pattern

I love creating beautiful handmade gifts when I have time. I crocheted this mesh shawl for my son’s kindergarten teacher, as a thank you gift. Teachers are special and never receive enough credit! I’m so thankful for the wonderful teachers in my kids’0 lives.

I love how it turned out. The sport weight cotton yarn leaves it soft, supple and gives it gorgeous drape. The coral color works so well for a bright summer shawl, or scarf. I often see her wearing coral and pink so I’m hoping she loves it as much as I do!




This one worked up so fast. I bought a pack of four balls of this yarn so I could’ve easily made it a bit bigger. This pattern grows so quickly with just chains and double crochets. I love the simplicity of it. My hardest decision was which lovely color to choose!

I worked up a photo tutorial to go with this one, so even if you’re new to crochet you can totally make this one! I linked up my video tutorials for the two stitches I use in this pattern too, so you’re all set-even if you’re brand new to crocheting!

This shawl pattern is worked by double crocheting, chaining and skipping stitches to create the open, mesh look. You will start by making a long chain, which will be the widest part of your shawl, so it should be long enough to stretch out from finger tip to finger tip of the wearer. I’ve included easy instructions for increasing the length of your starting chain, which will give a larger over all shawl.




To decrease our chain and begin to form the triangle you will skip stitches at the beginning and end of each row, slowing bringing in the sides until a point is reached. After the first couple of rows, it will be very easy to continue the pattern. This is a great project to work on while watching tv or listening to a book.

To get the same look of this shawl I would recommend using the same weight and material yarn that I did here. However, this pattern would work really well for worsted weight yarn or lightweight yarn, in any material with an appropriate sized hook, probably a 5-5.5mm hook.
