Video Tutorial for the Triangle Shawl Crochet Pattern
What is the best crochet stitch for a crochet shawl?
For the beginner crocheter, a double crochet stitch is great to start with. It’s the most common stitch when creating shawls, as it creates a full, light, lacy shawl look that is delicate and perfect for any season.
The double crochet stitch can be easily worked into rows or rounds of stitches to create different looks and textures. If you want extra texture in your shawl, using chain spaces will help create an outstanding shawl that is still a simple and easy crochet pattern. With some practice, these double crochet stitches can give your shawl a unique and beautiful look.
Can I use a different yarn weight for this crochet shawl?
Yes! You can use a different weight yarn and crochet hook and follow the instructions below. This is a flexible pattern for substitutions since it's a crochet accessory, not a fitted item. And if you don't want to change yarn colors, check out some self striping yarn.
To make substitutions and changes to the pattern:
1. A gauge swatch determines your yarn weight and crochet hook size. Check out my blog post on What is Crochet Gauge and How to Fix It for Success.
2. Once you have determined the correct yarn weight and crochet hook size, adjust your stitch count accordingly; you may need to start with fewer stitches in the first rows if you use bulky or worsted-weight yarn. Remove rows and/or stitches to achieve the correct size.
3. Remember to pay attention to the color changes if you use the worsted weight or bulky yarn. You will want to change color sections sooner than the instructions say to keep those sections the exact dimensions.
4. Be sure always to double-check your measurements when making substitutions! This will ensure that your finished product is exactly what you are after. Keeping a measuring tape nearby is often helpful.
