There are many different shapes and sizes of crochet shawls and wraps. And some are easier to crochet than others. I wanted to make a shawl that is beautiful but also very simple to make. So, how do you crochet a simple shawl? This one I made is a rectangular shape. It’s probably the easiest shape to work with as the amount of stitches in each row stays the same, no increasing or decreasing is required.

This feeling flirty lacy shell shawl is so light and delicate. Work this crochet pattern from the bottom up. Start with one shell and continue adding a shell to each side as you work up. Since this is made from a yarn cake that has beautiful, variegated colors throughout, there were just two yarn ends to weave in at the end. This lacy shell stitch is achieved by repeating two rows throughout this pattern. One row consists of chain and single crochet stitches. The next row is where the shell is made by working a double crochet in the same stitch five times. I have included photos of the first few rows to help with understanding the pattern. Additionally, there are video tutorials for both left and right hand crocheters. Lastly, there is a chart detailing the row being worked and number of shell stitches per row.

This Fall Triangle Shawl Pattern for Beginners was inspired by the beautiful fall sunsets with seasonal changing of leaves colors as the temperatures begin to drop in the evening. When the evenings get longer, and the days get shorter we will have a beautiful color palette to view outside. The beautiful shawl has a pattern repeat of two rows. Start at the bottom tip of the shawl and continue to grow the size of the shawl increasing stitches with each row and working up the lacy shawl. The triangle shape is achieved by increasing stitches in each row by 4 stitches.
The Sashay Asymmetrical crochet shawl pattern is a triangle-shaped shawl.

I know it sounds complicated, but it's easier than it looks and once you get the hang of it, you'll get into the rhythm!
