I wanted to create a shawl that worked up easily, had some fringe (who doesn’t love fringe?) and incorporated beading detail.
This shawl hit all notes and turned out beautifully! It’s an easy shawl to make over a weekend using any hook size and yarn.
It works up in a triangle so just keep going until you hit your desired length!
Don’t you just love patterns where gauge is not important?

- G hk or any size hk based on what yarn you use
- Yarn- any yarn can be used, I used premier yarns cotton fair, fine weight (2), 52% cotton, 48% acrylic. I used 3 different colors, about 6 oz needed.
- Sewing needle
- Beads: I used bead landing craft beads I purchased at Michaels, work great with this yarn. If using a thicker yarn choose a bead with a larger center hole.
Row 1: Ch 4, sl st in first ch made, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, dc in lp, ch 1, dc in same lp, turn.
Row 3: Ch 3, dc in first lp, ch 1, dc in same lp, ch 1, repeat in next lp, turn.
Row 4: Ch 3, dc in first lp, ch 1, dc in same lp, ch 1, dc in second lp, ch 1, repeat to end, turn.
**Continue with this sequence so the first and last stitch of each row has 2 dc and each stitch between them has 1 dc. The 2 dc at each end will help grow the triangle. Continue with the pattern until you reach the desired length you like. I made mine until the longest side measured approx. 54”. I used an entire ball, 3.5 oz. then about half a ball of the multi-colored ball (14 rows).
Cut strands of yarn about 16” long. Insert your hk anywhere at the edge along the “V” shape. Fold a stand in half, put the loop end on the crochet hook underneath the stitch and pull through the yarn tails.
Thread the yarn through a needle that will fit through your bead (you might have to thread them one stand at a time), then taking both strands make a knot under the bead. If your bead hole is too big, don’t worry! Thread the yarn one piece at a time through the bead then up and over through the bead again. Do this same technique on the other side and knot under the bead.
Attaching the button:
Count 30 spaces up from the bottom and insert hook. Take a long piece of yarn and fold in half then make 6 chains or however many need based on how big your button is. Sl into same space and finish off, weaving in ends. Count up 30 spaces on the other side and sew on your button.
Perfect any time of year depending on what type of yarn you use, very versatile! Great job!
