A Beginner’s Guide to Creating a Double Crochet Triangle Shawl

## Learn how to crochet a triangle shawl for beginners using the double crochet stitch ONLY with this complete tutorial!

Welcome to Nana’s Crafty Home! In this tutorial, I will walk you through the steps to crochet a beginner-friendly triangle shawl using only the double crochet stitch. The best part? It’s a one-row repeat pattern, making it perfect for mindless crochet time! You can find the written pattern instructions for the DC All Day Triangle Shawl [here](, and you also have the option to purchase the ad-free PDF of the pattern for a small fee [here](

To start, I recommend using yarn that corresponds to the size weight you prefer. I used a medium worsted weight yarn, specifically Karen Cotton Cakes, along with a size H (5.0mm) crochet hook. However, you have the flexibility to use any yarn weight you desire – just keep in mind that the size and pace of your project will vary accordingly. Remember to adjust your hook size accordingly as well.

For row 1, we start with a chain of four stitches. Then, in the fourth chain from your hook, work two double crochets, chain two, and three double crochets. These three skipped chains count as your first double crochet. This forms your first row of six double crochets and a chain two corner space.

Move on to row 2 by chaining three and turning your work. Double crochet in the same stitch as your chain three to create a double crochet cluster. Then, continue double crocheting in each stitch until you reach the chain two corner space. In the corner space, work two double crochets, chain two, and two double crochets. Finish the row by double crocheting in each stitch until the last stitch, where you will work two double crochets.

Repeat row 2 for subsequent rows, adjusting the length of the shawl based on your preferences.

  1. Some how my sides don’t come out with same number of stitches! I some time catch the mistake but I can’t find this time. I think I have ripped out twice now. Count with stitch markers. And I’m at 200+ stitches🤦🏼‍♀🤦🏼‍♀🤦🏼‍♀

  2. All this time I did not know all I had to do to make it even was to DC at the bottom of the chain and on the other side put the 2 DC at the top of that last chain. THANK YOU!!

  3. Thanks for an easy shawl pattern. I started to crochet yet another scarf n came across your video n changed direction to make a shawl instead. 😂thanks

  4. Oh good GRIEF. Where exactly do the last 2 DC GO! You go way too fast!!!! Does it go in the big hole with the ch3 or above that? Cuz ive gone thru this FOUR TIMES and i always get stuck at the end of the second row. Ugh. Not following.😢

  5. I've been trying to make this for 3 hours and haven't gotten past the 4th row. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, but it either cones out the right number of stitches, bit the wrong shape, or vice versa. Also my "last chain" that I DC into twice at the end of a row keeps ending up extremely small and tight, no matter how loose I try to keep everything. I don't normally have a problem with tension. Anyway, I'm hoping there's some common mistake I'm making that'll clear this up lol I'm hoping to have this done by Mother's Day

  6. I love the way you explain what you are going to be doing as well as the wording at the top of the screen. This is so helpful ! And your camera work is amazingly clear….thanks so much 😊 I will be trying your Triangle scarf with the pom pom edge, looks beautiful and love the colors you chose.

  7. Two days ago I held a crochet hook for the first time in my life and today I have a beautiful shawl! Your tutorial is perfect even for complete beginners, thank you so much for it! I fell in love with crocheting. 🙂

  8. I'm from Boston I have been crocheting since I was 7yrs.
    Is this very easy to do. I am Christian ✝️ woman.
    Would these be able to make 12 of them. For hospice patients for the woman who is recovering from chemo and radiation people to keep them warm.
    What size hook and the yarns do you use.
    My name is Sue

  9. Fantastic and easy pattern! So let me have things clear. Doing this the shawl will grow from the widest part of the triangle and works through the pointy part of the shawl, is this correct?
    What I say is that the first stich (or the magic ring, that you reference on your video) will be on the middle of the widest part of the triangle, and then work like a fan, growing from the centre.
    Sorry if i don't explaing myself well, since english is not my mother language and thank you for the pattern!

  10. I love this tutorial so much. Thank you for all the help !!! Curious if there is a way to add a border to the edge with all the ch3 stitches. How would someone go about doing that?

  11. I’ve watched this a few times now and it does seem easy. I’m just a little bit lost or just confused on the stitch count. Is it including the first chain of each row or in addition to? Like your row two says you have 12+ the chain three so that would be 13 but then you only count 12 so I was hoping if you could give us some insight on the end of row stitch counts

  12. I’m not a beginner. I’ve been crocheting 58 years, but this is really a wonderful video for a beginner, or an experienced crocheter. Thanks for this. I subscribed to your channel after seeing it.
