How to Crochet a Beginner Shawl in Three Colors

Have you ever crocheted a shawl before?

Shawls come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but the triangle shawl is the most basic, and most popular! They are easy to wear and style, and can feature all sorts of colorwork and stitching.

This shawl pattern is designed to be an easy and relaxing introduction to shawl crocheting. Featuring basic stitches and an easy to memorize repeat, you can customize it with your own favorite colors. You can use any three colors you like, in a bulky weight yarn.

In this class, you’ll learn next-step skills in crochet – the magic circle, front and back loop only, standing stitches, striping, floating yarn along the side, and working an edging. And you’ll be all ready to work on your own to finish your very first shawl!
