Striped Moss Stitch Crochet Triangle Shawl

Choose your favorite two colors to make this crochet triangle shawl pattern your very own. I chose two fall colors for a pretty crochet fall shawl to match all the pretty leaves and other colors of the fall season. But any other two colors will look just as lovely.

For Halloween you could try an orange and black. For Christmas and Valentine’s, you could use a red and white, and so on. Thus one pattern to make shawls for use throughout the year!

Best of all, this crochet shawl will make for lovely gifts for any woman who likes to stay warm and cozy and when the cool weather hits. Plus, it can be worn in many different ways to accessorize and compliment just about any outfit from plain to dressy.

And for crocheters, this moss stitch shawl is easy and mindless to work on.

The Size

The finished size is 60″ across the top row by 30″ from the bottom point to the top row. However, the size is super easy to adjust simply by doing more or less repeats of the pattern rows.

The Yarn

I used Ice Yarns Angora Comfort. The yarn is super soft and easy to work with. It drapes well, making it perfect for a luxurious wrap.

The downside of this yarn is that it contains 37% Polyamide, which can cause irritations for those with skin sensitivities and other allergies.

However, the good thing about the moss stitch is that it will look great in just about any other yarn, making it easy for you to substitute with your favorite yarn.

The Stitch Pattern

The moss stitch is beginner-friendly as it is made only with single crochets and chain one spaces!

In this crochet shawl pattern, increases are made by working two single crochet stitches in the first and last stitch of each row. In between those increases, single crochets are worked into the chain spaces, and the chain spaces fall on top of the single crochets to give you a nice woven look.

The color pattern is worked in 10 rows of the first color. Then two rows of the second color, followed by two rows of the first color. Then it’s reversed with 10 rows of the second color, two rows of the first, and two rows of the second. And repeat!

It is super easy and mindless from start to finish!
