If you’re looking for a beginner friendly, pretty and light triangle shawl crochet pattern then the Cherry Blossom shawl is your next Spring project.
It’s so simple to make, with only 2 different stitches used throughout. The puff stitches would add something a little extra even to a shawl made with a single colour or one colour changing yarn.
I don’t think you can have too many accessories, but even if you’re more minimalist this piece will take you through all the seasons. The aran yarn gives you enough weight to wear as a crochet triangle scarf round the front, snuggled under your coat in colder weather. The lacy pattern and cotton texture makes it easily transitional for breezy Spring/Summer days or cooler evenings.
I love triangle shawls or scarves as layering pieces and usually wear with a denim jacket and midi skirt, or a maxi dress. Shawls get a bad rap sometimes, conjuring up images of grannies in rocking chairs! Definitely not.
For finished size, each diagonal side will end approx 35″, complete width approx 50″.
It’s very beginner friendly and while stitch counts are included in the pattern for each section, I have no doubt you’ll be confident enough not to count after the first few once you have the repeats down.

I used Shine Worsted from We Crochet, it has a beautifully soft texture and shine – as it’s named! It was very easy to work with and had no splitting at all. Sometimes cotton yarns can be a little stiff to use and aren’t always comfy to wear on accessories but this is perfect. The colours are cream, blush, robot and currant. Thank you to WeCrochet for kindly gifting the yarn for this event! #SpringBlogHopWeC
I would also recommend Paintbox Cotton Aran, not quite as soft but still lovely!
