Are you looking for an easy peasy granny square shawl crochet pattern with a twist? Then, you’ll love the Triangulation Shawlette, a simple triangular shawlette that can be styled as a triangle scarf or enlarged to be a full sized shawl. It uses a self-patterning yarn to make colorwork easy, and combines the “granny” stitch with the v-stitch.

Let me tell you about the Triangulation Shawlette. It’s a granny square shawl with a twist! This simple, triangular shawlette can also be styled as a triangle scarf. The pattern works up quickly if you let a self-patterning yarn do the colorwork for you. For my version, I used 3 skeins of Red Heart Colorscape in 6342 Montreal.

The Triangulation Shawlette combines two of my favorite stitch patterns — the “granny” stitch and the v-stitch, so it’s a bit more interesting than your typical granny square shawl but just about as easy to crochet.

I made my version during my travels to Creativation, the annual trade show for the crafts industry. I started it during my trip to the airport and finished it during my flight. It was the perfect distraction and I just love how it all turned out.
