Just in time for TSKC’s Rainbow Issue: a rainbow net triangle shawl!

For this piece I used a combination of Vanna's Choice Yarn (Scarlet), Yarnspirations Caron x Pantone Yarn (Fuchsia Foliage and Frozen Berry) &  Loops & Threads Capri Yarn (Yellow) to get the nice vibrant mix of colors I was looking for. This ended up being roughly over 493 yards of yarn with an L (8mm) hook.


Here’s the step-by-step breakdown of the triangle shawl design.

Chain 6, double crochet stitch in first stitch to form a circle or space.

For Row 1, the pattern is as follows: chain 3, turn, double crochet stitch, chain 1 double crochet stitch in the circle

For Row 2, the pattern is as follows: chain 3, turn, (double crochet stitch, chain 1, double crochet stitch) in the first circle, chain 1, (double crochet stitch, chain 1, double crochet stitch) in the next circle.

For Row 3, the pattern is as follows: chain 3, turn, (double crochet stitch, chain 1, double crochet stitch) in the first circle, (chain 1, double crochet stitch) in each following circle space until the last circle and (double crochet stitch, chain 1, double crochet stitch) in the last circle.

Repeat Row 3 until you have reached your desired size. Be sure to change colors periodically to give the rainbow effect.

I ended up doing 56 rows in total to achieve this rainbow below.

Sew in all the loose ends and you're set! However, if you would like to add more to the piece it would be relatively easy to add fringe to the edges for a more boho look.

Since I used various yarns in this project, I did end up have to sew in more ends from where I connected the new pieces. If you want to avoid this or at the very least not do as many as I did, then you may want to look for an already self striping yarn skein.


Let me know how you did by sharing your shawls with TSKC on Facebook or Instagram.

Good luck knitting!
