I love to crochet triangle shawls for their versatility. They’re one of my favourite crochet patterns to whip up for a gift and my favourite style of crochet scarf. A granny stitch shawl is easy to work up in a couple of nights.

I’ve crocheted the granny stitch shawl in Brava worsted weight yarn from WeCrochet. Brava has so many options to choose from, including tweeds and speckle yarns. Plus, Brava is a great affordable price. Have fun picking out your favourite colour combos!
