This lacy crochet scarf is made with linen yarn from Darn Good Yarn. It’s my first time working with linen yarn and I’m really amazed at how it instantly makes your project more elegant and dressy. The sport weight yarn helps get a great drape and flow in your triangular shawl. The linen is also surprisingly soft against your skin.

Before you Start your Triangular Scarf


Triangular Scarf Size

The triangular scarf is 1.35m / 53” long and 65 cm / 25.5” wide (at the tip of the triangle)


The gauge for this pattern, in alternating rows of sc and dc is 18 st by 20 rows for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).

Abbreviations & Instructions

This pattern follows US notations

  • st = stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • ch = chain
  • inc = increase = make 2 st in the same stitch
  • skip = miss stitch


Repeat instructions between ** the indicated number of times or until the end of the round.

The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the row between < >.

The turning ch 1, ch 2 does not count as stitches throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.

I use a turning ch 2 for dc stitches as I find it gives me a neater edge.

Each stitch is worked in a separate stitch unless specified otherwise. Stitches between ( ) are to be made in the same stitch.

Stitches above a ch 1 space are worked in the ch 1 space.
