In the wide world of crochet, one of the types of projects that’s always intimidated me has been the triangle shawl/wrap/scarf. I have this perception that every crochet shawl requires some complicated method of increasing and decreasing, too much counting and not enough Netflix watching.

Well, not this shawl. As you’ll see in the video tutorial below, this pattern follows a simple repeat of puff stitches and double crochet “V’s”. Once you understand the basic concept of the stitches, you’ll have this pattern memorized enough to binge watch ____ (insert your favorite Netflix show here 🙂 ).

Working this project was very relaxing for me because it was simple enough to crochet with other distractions in the background, but not so basic that my brain turned into a bowl full of Jello in the process. I hope you enjoy it too!
