That combo of delicate, but warm, but fancy, but not fussy. Man, it's a tough balance to strike in a crochet shawl, isn't it? Today, I hope to to provide an answer to all your crochet scarf contradictions with the At First Blush triangle scarf.
This free lace crochet triangle scarf pattern is the third pattern in the series I've been releasing in partnership with Michael's and Lion Brand Yarn in celebration of the release of some new yarns and colors. (You can find the first two patterns here: The Presto 4.5 Hour Afghan, The Manchester Oversized Cowl.)
For this third free crochet pattern, I had a chance to try out the bonus bundle size of Lion Brand's soft and luxurious Touch of Alpaca yarn. This is the same yarn I used in the free Greyscale Poncho pattern and I just love it's easy-wearing-plus-a-bit-of-animal-fiber vibe.
You can now get your own crochet-lovin' hands on the Touch of Alpaca Bonus Bundle skeins at select Michael's stores, Michaels.com and LionBrand.com. I'm so excited about this because these Bonus Bundles are a whole heap of yarn (415 yards!) at a great price and Michael's has been running some additional sales on this yarn lately that make it a fantastic deal. Check them out at Michaels.com here!
I'm pretty sure that if I saw this lace crochet triangle scarf floating around the internet my first thought would be, "Eh--that looks a little too complicated to suit my mindless Netflix and crochet appetite." BUT, that assumption would be wrong! 🙂
For this beautiful Touch of Alpaca yarn, I wanted to create a project that was easy enough to work on between interruptions because, let's face it, with a two and a five-year-old may days are basically just a series of interruptions strung together. This is a project that looks like it might require some sort of magic crochet mastery, but really, it's a perfect project to tuck in your bag and work on whenever you get a free crochet minute.
And this pattern is super easy to modify the size! Because the lace and puff stitch repeat is the same each row, you can just continue crocheting the pattern until you have a triangle scarf or lace shawl that you like the size of. The sample size works pretty well to transition between wearing as a scarf and a shawl, but I also think making a smaller, kerchief-style scarf or a larger wrap would work beautifully.
Since I know many of you are visual learners, I'll be releasing a video tutorial for this lace crochet triangle scarf later this month. I've also included a stitch chart as a bonus in the ad-free, printable PDF for anyone, who like me, understands a pattern much more quickly when it's laid out in a visual diagram. You can pick that up for $2.75 here.
Lion Brand has also created a kit from this pattern (always an honor!) that includes all the yarn you need for the project, plus a printed copy of the pattern. You can pick up your own kit here.

Overall Pattern Notes:
• The sizing of this scarf is very flexible. Just continue working the pattern until the triangle is the size you’d like.
• Ch 4 at beginning of each row counts as 1 dc and 1 ch1sp.
• Work first 4 ch of each row and the last 2 dc of each row quite loosely to be certain the edges of the triangle lay flat.
• To double check your work, keep in mind that triangle should increase by 1 puff stitch and one set of [dc, ch 1, dc] “V’s” each row. (See stitch chart in ad-free, printable for reference if you'd like.)
THE TRIANGLE SCARF
Puff Stitch: [yo, insert hook in st and draw a long loop up through] 4 times in same stitch, yo and draw a loop through all 9 loops on hook. Each puff stitch is always followed by a ch 1 to close the puff.
Foundation Row: Ch 8.
Row 1: Sk first 5 ch, work [dc, ch 1, dc] all in the sixth ch from the hook, ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in last ch; turn.
Row 2: Ch 4 loosely, [dc, ch 1, dc] all in first ch1sp, puff stitch in next ch1sp (between 2 dc), ch 1 (this ch closes the puff stitch), [dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc] all in tch sp; turn. (1 puff stitch, 2 “V”s)
Row 3: Ch 4 loosely, [dc, ch 1, dc] all in first ch1sp, 1 puff stitch in next ch1sp, ch 1, [dc, ch 1, dc] all in top of next puff stitch (under ch that closes the puff stitch), 1 puff stitch in next ch1sp, ch 1, [dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc] all in tch sp; turn. (2 puff stitches, 3 “V”s)
Row 4: Ch 4 loosely, [dc, ch 1, dc] all in first ch1sp, 1 puff stitch in next ch1sp, ch 1, *[dc, ch 1, dc] all in top of next puff stitch (under ch that closes the puff stitch), 1 puff stitch in next ch1sp, ch 1; rep from * until tch remains, [dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc] all in tch sp; turn. (3 puff stitches, 4 “V”s)
Repeat Row 4 until scarf reaches 44 total rows or desired size. Fasten off and weave in ends.
See photo above for a visual tutorial. Using MC yarn and a cardboard tube cut to 6” (or a tassel maker), wrap yarn approximately 50 times around the tube lengthwise. Insert 10” strand 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 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 onto the corner of the scarf and weave in ends. Repeat twice more on second and third corner. (See the 9:20 point in this video tutorial for a quick visual lesson.)
Envelope yourself in puffy alpaca lace and hit the ballet, a secret garden or the grocery store in style.
