How to Crochet a Granny Triangle Shawl: Free Video Tutorial

Granny Triangle Shawl for Web

I recently had a viewer request to do a video tutorial for a traditional granny triangle shawl. What a great idea! I love the flexibility of this design. You can make it whatever size suits your needs. Make it to fit your little girl or your grandmother! This versatile shawl can also be used to wrap around the neck for a lacy cowl as shown above. I like this look the best! 

Here it is worn as a traditional shawl

For my shawl,  I used Red Heart Boutique Treasure yarn in the colorway Portrait. I used approximately 2 1/2 skeins and my finished shawl fits a small adult.

This yarn has recently been discontinued so I recommend using Red Heart Evermore for your shawl as a substitute!

And I have to thank you for your wonderful , easy to understand instructions and videos.please keep it coming. Because yours are only ones I enjoy watching and learn from. This shawl was a fun project and I used a little of improvisation. I finished it in a day and the half and send it to my mom to Boston…. I think she will be surprised and pleased.

    Agreed that written instructions would be helpful. The video is nice,
    but many of us prefer to work from written instructions. As mentioned by
    another commenter, there appears to be a mistake in the symbol drawing
    in round 3. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Brittany,

    Your patterns are inspiring! I first made the reversible tenisian boot cuffs…LOVE them! And recently I made the Hairpin Lace Scarf for my daughter for Christmas and it is beautiful! Not to mention a relaxing project! Thank you so much for sharing!
    Recently I’ve been trying to follow a pattern for a similar Granny Bandana scarf, but having problems. So, I’m eager to watch your tutorial!! Like you, I prefer to make my projects from scratch, not big on following patterns, but learning as I go! Be in touch to let you know how it goes!

    Wish you were local here to have an in person crochet group!!

    Sincerely,

    Apryl Fox

    Hey Brittany, Unless I am mistaken, there is a mistake in your diagram starting at row 3, and then making row 4 also off. There should be by my counting only 6 clusters total in row 3, then only 8 clusters for row 4. Love the pattern though! Thank you for the excellent video tutorial!

    Hi there, I just started on this shawl (I already had the perfect wool and have been looking for a pattern like this!). Early on I am just seeing that the ends of the triangle, when lay flat, are curving up slightly. I was wondering if I crocheted too tight at the beginning and instead the triangle should be perfectly straight, as if it was exactly half a square. Any tips you have or a picture of your shawl lay flat would be appreciated!
