How To Crochet a Simple Triangle Shawl
To crochet a triangular shawl, the aim is to have a triangle. There are two popular methods of crocheting a shawl with a triangular shape.
Method 1: Start from the middle; this gradually expands towards the sides or tips of the shawl. The pattern repeats can be continued until you have a triangular-shaped shawl wide enough for you.
Method 2: A few patterns start from the Apex/tip of the triangle and gradually expand out.

Best Yarn For Crochet Triangular Shawl Pattern
Picking the best yarn for your next crochet shawl should not be a chore. You can make your triangular shawl with any yarn weight at your disposal.
Sportweight yarns make lightweight crochet triangular shawls. This yarn weight is for you if you want a less bulky shawl. Perfect for summer crochet shawls.
Medium-weight yarns like DK and lightweight worsted-weight yarns also make light shawls work up quicker than sportweight yarns. It gives less bulky shawl when compared to the shawls made from chunky weight yarn, but is heavier than sport weight shawls. It can be used for Spring, Fall, and winter crochet triangular shawls.
Chunky weight yarns like sizes #5 or #6 are best for super quick projects and are perfect for winter crochet shawls
