The Faroese Triangle Crochet Shawl Pattern is a cool kid on the block in terms of shawl shapes.
Have you ever tried a shawl shape called a Faroese Shawl?
The Faroese shape shawl is a simplistic construction. There is a panel section on the center which has a triangle increase on each side.
Over one hundred years ago women from the Faroese Isles devised this style of garment. By giving the back neckline more space this shawl is easier to wrap around oneself.
Give the Faroese triangle crochet Shawl pattern a try and see if you like the fit!

About This Yarn
This triangle crochet shawl is made with a bulky weight yarn but it's 55% cotton so still great for those summer months. Especially if there is an evening chill. I found this yarn at Hobby Lobby and it's called Bee Arabella in Colorway Majestic Mauve
I enjoyed working with this soft yarn because of the different color changes. It added a lot of color texture and depth while working up.
Want to work this up with other yarns and yan weights? Go ahead! But if it is for the summer months a cotton yarn is always nice.
The same cotton yarn was for the Farese Triangle Knit Shawl in a different colorway that is wonderful as well.
Can this be resized?
Because the Faroese crochet shawl pattern has a simple repeat, it would be easy to make this triangle crochet shawl more substantial or smaller by merely working less or more rows.
If you have ever crocheted a triangle shawl this is done in a similar way, except it adds a special center panel down the center back. It's fun to work a different set of textured stitches that compliments the overall look.
Want a better fit around the neckline? The center panel on this wrap helps shape around the neck. So give it a try!
But if you aren't partial to triangle shawls and would still like a light summer project, check out the Infinity Spring Furls Crochet Shawl.
