Beginner’s Triangle Shawl
This triangle shawl uses a variation on the granny square stitch, making it an easy project for granny square lovers. A thin yarn in spring colors transforms this pattern into a lightweight shawl. Use the same stitch pattern with a thicker yarn for a cozy fall or winter shawl. Let the yarn do the color work for you by choosing a self-striping or long color repeat yarn.
