The Inspiration Behind The Whisper Chunky Crochet Triangle Scarf
Last week I shared the first of three pattern in a series I've made with Lion Brand's new Color Made Easy yarn. (If you missed the Haven Cardigan in all it's bobbled, beginner-friendly goodness, you can check it out here.) Next week, I'll be sharing the Quad Color throw in a baby blanket size and a couch throw size.
Color Made Easy is a now available at select Michaels stores and on Michaels.com, which is so exciting because it's a yarn I can really see myself using for impromptu crochet gifts, and let's be honest, a whole lot of projects I have planned just for myself.
I love being able to run to a store and stroke all the colors in real life. I'm guessing you might be able to relate to experiencing the divine project inspiration that can strike in the yarn aisle at Michaels!
For the Whisper chunky crochet triangle scarf design, I really wanted to focus on texture so that crocheters could choose from the gorgeous shades of Color Made Easy to find one that suits your own personal style. I'd love to make another one of these wraps in Avocado or Basalt. Wouldn't that be pretty?
Who Can Make This Chunky Crochet Triangle Scarf?
Because this pattern is made with a simple combination of half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet, it's really pretty easy. Once you have the first eight or so rows figured out, you'll be off to the races and just repeat those techniques in different ways throughout the pattern.
I often find that for slightly lacy crochet patterns like this triangle wrap, a stitch chart can be super helpful. Crochet pattern lingo is so wordy sometimes and the simplicity of a visual stitch chart can make all that writing so much quicker and easier to digest.
In the ad-free, printable PDF, you'll find a thorough stitch chart along with the written pattern and photo tutorials, so that no matter your skill level or how you like to learn, you'll be covered. You can grab the printable PDF for a few dollars here.
Treat Yourself to a Complete Crochet Triangle Scarf Kit
Sometimes all it takes to finish an awesome project is having the supplies to get started, so I'm really happy that Lion Brand has turned the Whisper Triangle Scarf pattern into a crochet kit. In one fun box of happy mail, you'll receive all the Color Made Easy yarn you need, plus a printed copy of the pattern and crochet stitch chart. You can order yourself a kit here!

After finishing this chunky crochet triangle scarf, I realized my friend Alexi from Two of Wands had made a very similar version a while back using even chunkier yarn. Her pattern is definitely worth checking out too--and while you're there, follow her on Instagram for all the crochet and knit inspiration your eyes can handle!

Fasten off. Leave marker in center stitch if planning to add braided fringe.
Adding Tassels (optional)
See video below for a visual tutorial. Using a cardboard tube cut to 6.25” (or a tassel maker), wrap yarn approximately 65 times around the tube lengthwise. Insert a 10” piece of yarn underneath wrapped yarn on one end of the tube. Tie a few secure knots, but do not trim these pieces. Use scissors to cut the wrapped yarn at the other end of the tube.
Fold the resulting strands of yarn in half and wrap a second 10” piece of yarn around the top of the strands to create a small sphere of yarn. Insert hook through bottom of tassel to grab these tails and hide them in the tassel.
Use the tails from the first 10” piece of yarn to tie the tassel to corner of scarf and weave in ends. Repeat for opposite corner.
Adding Braided Fringe (optional)
See photo below for a visual example. Cut pieces of yarn to approx. 14”.
>Tip: It can be helpful to wrap yarn around an appropriately sized book several times and cut to create a lot of fringe of the length size quickly.
Beginning at center triangle point (marked stitch) thread three pieces of yarn through hdc stitch. Loosely braid these pieces of yarn for 1.5-2”. Wrap one braid tail around entire braid and tuck tail through resulting loop to tie off. Skip 3 hdc sts and repeat braiding process in fourth st.
Rep along both sides of triangle.
Bundle up in your new handmade scarf and head out to find some snow (or yarn for your next project)!
That was so fun! Now what?

Color made easy is no longer available. What would you suggest in its place? (No wool)
Could you make this shawl using worsted weight yarn instead of chunky and go down to a smaller size hook. Thanks
Jess @ Make and Do Crew says
Yes! You should could. The repeat is quite simple, so you could always add more rows to create a similar sized shawl with thinner yarn. 🙂
Ian Baki says
Scarf looks cool. I am trying it to make.
Jess @ Make and Do Crew says
Thanks Ian. I hope you enjoy!
Patricia Harris says
If I make two of these Shawl / scarves , would it make a poncho?
Jess @ Make and Do Crew says
Gosh, what an interesting question. I do believe you could fashion a poncho out of two shawls by seaming together the tops of the triangles and leaving a space for a neck opening. Is that what you were thinking? I'd love to see a photo if you try it!
