Triangle Moss Crochet Stitch Shawls

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.

Enjoy!

Worked in a cotton/nylon blend, perfect for those warmer months!

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!

TIPS

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.

BORDER

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!

Be sure to show us you finished blanket and tag us using #rubygraceinspo.
