This shawl explores two different ways to crochet a right triangle, hence the name, Two Ways to Crochet it Right. It starts with bold horizontal stripes that are then rotated on their side to work the border, leaving their final resting place at an eye catching angle. The border follows the more traditional method of crocheting a top down right triangle and has an open work row to add interest.

Here’s how one of my fantastic testers @modernandhandmade on Instagram described the pattern.

“It’s such a fun and easy pattern for an ambitious beginner, with just enough complex shaping to keep an experienced crocheter interested! I love how modern and artsy it looks…”
