Crochet Boho Triangle Shawl
This Boho Triangle Shawl is the perfect crochet project for beginners and anyone who loves to use the granny stitch as this shawl is worked up using the granny triangle pattern. The shawl is super easy and quick to work up as it is just repeating rows to make the shawl as long as you’d like or you can make a shawlette or scarf by making the shawl smaller in size. Personally, I think all styles would look great! You can also be more creative than me by using variegated yarn to have a lovely colourful shawl or use two or more colours to make your shawl unique.

Form a magic ring,
Row 1: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc and 1 ch), *dc 3, ch 3, dc 3* into ring (forms the corner), ch 1, dc 1 into ring, turn work at end of row 1 (2 dc-3 clusters, 2 dc-1)
Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc and 1 ch), dc 3 into ch 1 sp from the previous row, then ch 1. *dc 3, ch 3, dc 3* into ch 3 sp (forms the corner), then ch 1. *dc 3, ch 1, dc 1* into last ch 1 sp to finish the row, turn work at end of row 2 (4 dc-3 clusters, 2 dc-1)
Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc and 1 ch), dc 3 into 1st ch 1 sp from the previous row, then ch 1. *dc 3, ch 1* into each ch 1 sp until you get to the ch 3, then ch 1. *dc 3, ch 3, dc 3* into ch 3 sp, then ch 1. *dc 3, ch 1* in each ch 1 sp. *dc 3, ch 1, dc 1* into last ch 1 sp to finish the row, turn work at end of each row (6 dc-3 clusters, 2 dc-1)
Row 4 -35 (onwards): Repeat row 3 and increase a dc-3 cluster in the ch 1 sp at the beginning and end of each row
Continue to work the established pattern until you get your desired length for your shawl or you can make it smaller for a shawlette or scarf.
Once you have reached your desired length ending the row with a dc-3, ch 1, dc 1 in the last ch 1 sp, you can secure your work and weave in all the ends using a tapestry needle.
You can leave the shawl as is with nice sharp, crisp edges or you can add tassels/fringe. If you want to add tassels/fringe just scroll down to find out how to make them and attach them to the shawl.
You will notice a pattern forming (which forms a triangle), where the beginning of each row starts with a ch 4 and dc-3 cluster in 1st ch 1 sp, and 1 dc-3 cluster in each ch 1 sp until you reach the ch 3 sp and then into the ch 3 sp you need to dc 3, ch 3, dc 3, and then do 1 dc-3 cluster in each ch 1 sp with a 1 dc-3 cluster, ch 1 and dc 1 into last ch sp.
Adding a ch 4 at the beginning of the row and a dc 1 at the end of the row helps to form a straight edge that will go over your shoulders.
Adding a ch 4, dc-3 cluster into 1st ch 1 sp and a dc-3 cluster, ch 1, dc1 into the last ch 1 sp helps to increase the rows by 2 dc-3 clusters each row. E.g. row 4 = 8 dc-3 clusters, row 5 = 10 dc-3 clusters, row 6 = 12 dc-3 clusters etc.
Adding Tassels or Fringe
Cut a piece of card approx. 38 cm or 15 inches and begin winding the yarn around the card several times. Cut the yarn away from the skein and then cut the yarn at the top of the card where you cut the yarn away from the skein. You will now have several pieces of yarn that are all the same length. Decide how many pieces of yarn you want to use together (i.e. 1 tassel has 5 strands of yarn), then fold the pieces evenly in half.
Always begin with the right side of the project facing up and insert your crochet hook into a ch 1 sp from the bottom up. Take your folded yarn which has formed a loop and yarn over with the loop and then pull the loop through the work. Yarn over with all the strands and pull through to make 1 tassel.
Continue this in each ch 1 sp and the ch 3 sp down each side of the triangle including the point of the triangle at the bottom.
