:) FREE Triangle Shawl Knitting Pattern:

To increase

  • CO 1 stitch
  • Row 1: KFB
  • Row 2: *K*
  • Row 3: *K*
  • Row 4: *K*
  • Row 5: KFB *K*
  • Repeat rows 2-5 until it measures 37” {94mm}, or desired length.
  • {approx. 83 STS, if you’re gauge is the same as mine.}


Place a removable stitch marker on the edge that you’re increasing as a reminder to increase a stitch.
You’ll want to move it every 15, or so, rows so it keeps reminding you :)

To decrease

  • Row 1: *K*
  • Row 2: *K*
  • Row 3: *K*
  • Row 4: K1, SKP, *K*
  • Repeat rows 1-4 until you have 4 STS


You’ll want to keep moving that stitch marker on the decrease side too.
If you forget to increase on a row that’s okay, just increase on the row after the next {still on the same side as your stitch marker}.
Then continue in pattern.
Just remember to forget to decrease a row on the other side, in about the same place, so that both sides match ;)
This is a very forgiving pattern!

To end

  • Row 1-3: *K*
  • Row 4: K1, SKP, K1 {3 STS remaining}
  • Row 5: K1, SKP {2 STS remaining}
  • Row 6: SKP {1 STS remaining}

:) Blocking:

This shawl doesn’t need to be blocked. :)
However, I lightly block mine by spritzing it with water, patting it dry with a towel and then laying it flat to dry. {I didn’t pin it to a certain size}
According to this article, you can block it to be crescent shaped. I had plans to make this a crescent shaped shawl, but I fell in love with it just the way it is. I’d love to see your shawl when you’re finished, tag it #grabngoshawl so I can find it :)

:) Abbreviations:

  • * – * – repeat pattern
  • CO – cast-on {long-tail cast-on method}
  • K – knit stitches {K1 means to knit 1 stitch}
  • KFB – knit the stitch, before slipping off, knit another stitch into the back of the same stitch, slip to right needle
  • P – purl stitches {P2 means to purl 2 stitches}
  • SKP – Slip 1 stitch {purl-wise}, Knit 1 stitch, Pass slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
  • STS – stitches

:) Gauge:

:) Storytime:

This was a wonderfully peaceful & easy (& exciting) shawl to knit.

It slowly grows by adding 1 new stitch every forth row until your desired width and then you decrease every fourth row until you have 1 stitch left.

It becomes a cozy, elongated triangle shawl or cowl, depending on your mood and/or weather.

This was a 2-fold knitting project, the first half was peaceful and the second half was exhilarating.

While knitting the second half, my excitement grew with each decrease row because it meant that I was one row closer to wrapping up in it :)

:) Confession: Me vs the Garter Stitch *heavy sigh*:

Once upon a time, in two thousand and eleven, I learned how to knit.

I refused to knit anything using the garter stitch, the stitch where you knit every row, front and back.

It was just too simple… it was for newbies.

{Clearly I was in denial of being a beginner knitter.}

However, now as a seasoned knitter I’m finally embracing the garter stitch.

And I’m in love!

The garter stitch creates the perfect texture, stretch and squish for any cozy project. {in my humble opinion.}

Have you been avoiding the garter stitch because it was too easy?

I was. If you’re stubborn like me I give you full permission to try this “beginner” stitch and love it…

I would like to encourage you to try it and let me know your thoughts in the comments below :)

Do you like, love, or dislike the Garter Stitch?
