Scrappy Stripes Triangle Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

Scrappy Stripes Triangle Shawl - Free Crochet Pattern

Those small balls of yarn left over from projects past can really add up quickly. Every crocheter or knitter has this “problem” and asks themself the eternal question…what do I DO with this crazy mishmash of colors?! Granny squares are definitely a good way to stash-bust, for sure. If you’re just not into the granny square at the moment, why not try out a scrappy shawl?

Obviously you don’t have to make this a scrappy shawl, you can do it all in one color or in stripes of various widths. Change colors as often as you like, there’s no right or wrong here. For the striped shawl shown in the picture, I used a 4-2 repeat. Four rows of one color, two rows of another. If you are all for getting rid of smaller scraps too, and don’t mind changing colors mid-row, you can make a truly unique shawl.




Shawls are on trend in a big way, so if you give one of these to your teenage children they will totes love you for it! Maybe call it a “bandana scarf” when you give it to them though…they’ll think you’re hip, and might even crack a smile!

Make it for yourself, gift it to charity, give to a family member or friend. Just get rid of those scraps so you can buy more yarn, am I right?!

Go up a hook size if you like, but I wouldn’t recommend going down a size. Since this shawl is made in all single crochet, it really needs a big hook to give it good drape.
