Hello and Welcome!
It’s been a minute since I’ve had a new pattern go out. A lot has been happening in my world and my focus and mental health has had to take center stage. I go in to more deets in the Ruby Grace newsletter so I won’t drop the drama llama here. I sure do miss being here every week though!
Fall is just around the corner and I’ve been seeing lots of new projects for the season on the socials, but the only thing I’ve managed to stay on top of in the the last couple of months is laundry and dishes (sad state of affairs here people) and I wanted to get this out to you all anyway!
I have 2 shawls to share with you today. Same style, mostly the same striping pattern, but our first shawl is made with Michael’s Loops & Threads Creme Cotton and the second is made with Lion Brand Basic Stitch.
As you can see it’s a super versatile pattern that can shine with different types of yarn.
What is the Triangle Moss Stitch?
A simple variation to the moss stitch. A standard moss stitch is worked in horizontal row and consists of single crochets and chain stitches. The triangle moss stitch has the same stitch pattern, but starting with a short chain, worked up one side to a peak and down the other to create a triangle!

Fasten off, Weave in ends.
Want an easy way to keep track of each row? We sure do, so we include row trackers in our PDF’s! You can download that HERE. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have something to physically check off, I spend more time counting and recounting instead of crocheting!
The NIKKI SHAWL
The Nikki Shawl is made with Lion Brand Basic Stitch Anti Pilling and Lion Brand Basic Stitch Skein Tones. This yarn is 100% acrylic and is perfect for cooler weather! You can get all the deets for this version along with the Tasha Shawl in the full PDF HERE.
Getting past row 2 is the hardest part, but once you do it’s smooth sailing! Be sure to check out the video linked above! In it I show you exactly what to look for to make it soo much easier. Also!
- It’s a good idea to weave in those ends with a darning/tapestry needle instead of crocheting over the top of them, Since you skip 2 chains/stitches there isn’t a lot of opportunity for security.
- If you’re having a hard time finding that last stitch at the end of the row to crochet into, or keep loosing your chain 2 at the peak, place a stitch marker in those stitches.
One lovely thing about this type of stitch totally doesn’t need a border! If you do, I would so just single crochets. When you get to those corners do sc, ch1, sc and at the peak, do sc, ch2, sc.
That’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
