Warlock triangle shawl
These days I am obsessed with shawls.I searched for so many patterns with different shapes as side to side, bottom up, top down, triangle shawls.And in the and I decide as a first try to start with super simple but very beautiful triangle shawl pattern.With this triangle shawl pattern I learned tips and tricks which will help me to improve my skills and crochet a bit more complicated ones.Warlock shawl is long 80 cm and wide 150 cm without tassels.
The Yarn :
For this triangle shawl pattern I used Lion brand Mandala yarn in color Warlock. I bought this yarn 3 months ago and couldn’t find a pattern to use it.I have never crocheted with so thin yarn and was afraid how it will turn in the end.But after I finished this triangle shawl I was really happy with the result.I controled the color changing because I like the color to be changed smoothly, not in the middle of the row. I just cut the yarn and attached the new one.I used both skeins together because the last rows were very long and needed to combine the same color from both skeins. There is a difference in the skeins and if the first one has more mustard color the second hasn’t so I just combined them and crocheted along. If color changing is not a problem for you than it will be better for you ( you will have less end to weave in ). The yarn which left after cutting I used to make tassels and to decorate the shawl. The yarn is 540m /590 yards and we will need 2 skeins for this pattern.
The Pattern :
This pattern is really suitable for beginners, intermediates or advanced ones. We have 8 rows which we will repeat till the end. As a beginner it is super simple pattern and we don’t need to count stitches all the time. So if you are advanced or intermediate crocheter and waht something easy and simple to follow it can be your next project too. So if you are ready grab your yarn take your hook and lets crochet this Warlock triangle shawl. If you are a visual learner than you can check the video tutorial too. here
Tips and tricks for the pattern :
- At the beginning of each row we will ch3 and we will make 2 dc in base of initial ch3.
- At the center which is ch-2 space we will make ( 2dc, ch2, 2dc all in same ch2- space )
- At the end of each row we will make 3dc on top of turning ch3.
- We will increase with 4 sts per side in each row, so for example if we have 20 sts in row 4 per side, in row 5 we will have 24 sts and so on.
- The table down below indicates the color for each row and the numbers indicated how many sts you must have in the end of each row.
dc – double crochet
ch-x sp- chain -( 1,2,3) space
tch- turning chain

Row 47 : Same as row 43.
Weave all ends in. Take the yarn left and make the tassels. To make tassels take small cardboard then spin the yarn around the cardboard 50 times at least if you want you can spin more or less. After that take a small string of yarn to insert it under one side of the yarn we spinned around the cardboard and tighten it up. Cut the yarn from the downside of the cardboard. That’s it. The first tassel is ready. Make 2 more and sew them to each side of the triangle shawl.
Fun shawl pattern!! I thought your way of writing the pattern was so helpful for a less-experienced crocheter! I couldn’t find a hook size in the written instructions, so I just went with my intuition and grabbed a 4.5– then I watched the video and that’s what you used— so my intuition was good. Thanks!!
I’m stuck on row 2.
Do I slst then Ch 3 or ?
The bottom of the ch 3, do you mean where I started it on the circle?
At the beginning, you will start by ch4 and sl.st in 4th chain from the hook to form a ring, then ch3,3dc,ch2,4dc into the ring.For row 2 – ch3 always counts as a stitch and you must make your dc in this st, not the next ones. I hope this will help
This shawl is SO gorgeous that immediately after seeing it, I went and ordered myself a bunch of Warlock cakes so that I could make one! I’ve got it on the hook now! Thank you so much for all of the pix and clear instructions. I sometimes tend to be written-pattern challenged but not with this! I could not be happier with this pattern!
Where do I get the written pattern. Too many advertisements on this page to see the pattern
