All About the Tela Crochet Triangle Shawl

The Yarn

Is it entirely possible to be absolutely in love with a yarn and also never want to work with it again?

This mostly sums up how I feel about Lion Brand’s Coboo Yarn.

Let’s talk about the pros first:

It is GORGEOUS. The slight sheen on the yarn make the stitches absolutely pop.

It is ultra soft and smooth. The yarn is just pleasurable to touch and the fabric that works up is delightful against your skin.

Not only is it beautiful and soft but it also drapes like a dream! It has a slightly heavy feel, which would be awesome for a blanket or any wearable.

What about the cons?

There is only one, but to some, it can be a BIG one:

It splits. It splits like crazy.

I think this shawl took probably twice as long as it would have if I’d used other yarn because I had to slow way down or rip it out to fix stitches where I missed a thread.

In all honesty: it was a pain in the rear.

If the yarn wasn’t so gorgeous and didn’t feel so lovely I probably would have stopped, but the pros DID outweighed the cons.

Will I use it again? Probably but it’ll be awhile before I do.

I REALLY want a blanket in this yarn. The feel and weight are just so lovely, but I am going to have to do some experimenting to see what sort of stitches are the least prone to splitting.

Stitches used in the Triangle Shawl crochet pattern

There are really only two stitches you need to have mastered before you take on this shawl: chains and half double crochets. That’s it as far as stitches.

There are, however, some techniques you should be familiar with like working in chain spaces and working multiple stitches in the same spaces.

The half double crochet v-stitch is right in between the spider stitch and the dc v-stitch. I suggest you review both tutorials to get the hang of stitch placement before getting started.

Construction of the Triangle Shawl

The shawl is worked from the bottom up – which means you start quickly with a tiny triangle and then towards the end are thinking to yourself – is this row ever going to end?

Once you get past row 6, you’ll be repeating rows 5 and 6 for the rest of the shawl. The only things to pay attention to at that point are the color changes.
