An Easy Crochet Mesh Triangle Shawl Pattern + Video

Sharing is caring!

The Easy Crochet Mesh Triangle Shawl is lightweight with beautiful drape. Crochet this top down shawl in sport weight cotton yarn for the ultimate Spring and Summer Triangle scarf.

Add tassels or fringe to take this simple mesh to the next level. 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’ lives.

I love how the crochet mesh shawl 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!

The easy mesh triangle shawl crocheted 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 {updated + new video 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!

Construction

This crochet triangle shawl pattern works up with basic crochet stitches. The double crochet, chains and skipped stitches 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.

Yarn

To get the same look of this crochet mesh triangle shawl I would recommend using the same yarn weight 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.

You can add tassels to the ends, or leave them off. I have a full tutorial for how to make and add the tassels here.

Notes

  1. Ch 4 counts as a dc + ch 1, mark the 3rd ch to help you see where to start on the next row.
  2. Shawl is worked on the long edge, decreased on both ends narrowing to the point.
  3. The triangle shape is made by skipping stitches at the beginning of each row, and at the end of every row.
  4. St multiple is an even number, plus 6.

Skill Level

For a larger or smaller shawl work your starting chain to the desired size, remember to chain an even number plus 6 more. To adjust the foundation chain you can add or subtract in 2s to my chain.

  3. Hi
    Thank you for the pattern. It’s really lovely. I’m making it now and my edges are curling in. Am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks again for the free pattern!

  4. You’re quite welcome. If you’re edges are curling in it’s likely your tension is too tight, so you can try going up a hook size. Or it’s possible, you’re missing stitches, so you can double check your stitch count to make sure you’re increasing enough for each round. I hope that helps!
