Grab this OPENNESS : Triangle Shawl Knitting Pattern. This is a beginner shawl knitting pattern with a video tutorial to help you get started.


I was surprised at how clean of an increase it was, so I decided to try creating a triangle shawl using this technique and I’m very happy with the result! I think it’s the perfect shawl! It fits all my requirements… quick & easy. Quick is relative. 10 hours may sound like a long time, however, in the shawl world that’s super quick. I’m working on another shawl pattern and I’ll have about 40 hours in it… so, when I put it into perspective for myself, 10 hours is not so bad. ;) Because the pattern is easy to memorize I found it to be relaxing and therapeutic. Again, all the things I love about a pattern!

Knit starting at the tip.

Knit using the garter stitch.

I used 5 skeins for this super cozy shawl.

Knit flat, back & forth using circular needles.

Increase 2 stitches on every ODD row and then knit the next row.

Circular needles are used to accommodate the large number of CO stitches.




Pattern, Knit Flat {Back & Forth}:

CO 1 stitch

Row 1: INC1, K1, INC1

Row 2: *K*

Row 3: INC1, K3, INC1

Row 4: *K*

Row 5: INC1, K5, INC1

Row 6: *K*


Row 7: INC1 *K* INC1

Row 8: *K*

Repeat rows 7-8 until you’ve reached your desired size of shawl.


Bind-off very loosely in the K1, P1 pattern, this will help keep it from curling.

Weave in the ends.

No blocking necessary.



* – * – repeat between *

BO – bind-off in pattern

CO – cast-on {long-tail cast-on method}

INC1 – make 1 stitch {I use a backwards loop}

K – knit stitches {K1 means to knit 1 stitch}

STS – stitches
