Oh wheeh! Just finished designing and knitting an over-sized triangle shawl, and I’m absolutely thrilled about it. The base shawl as already great, but it now features a statement-sized cross and beaded tassels. It’s huge – so it’s trendy; it’s black – so it matches everything; and it’s a wool blend – so it’s wonderfully warm.
My idea was to make a basic triangular shawl knitting pattern and then to embellish the shawl in say 10 different ways.
This over-sized shawl can be worn as a cardigan!
The photo bohek was accidental. Maybe it was help by Heaven, as it shows us that this shawl will look great in variegated yarn!!!
The shawl knitting pattern is now in my little knitting pattern shop.
Oversized Triangle Scarf Knitting Pattern – Embellished in Different Ways
The first thing I did was adding tassels with beads. That has been proven a great idea! Even though the beautiful Troll beads I chose are only small, together with the yarn tassel, they have just enough weight to keep the two ends of the triangle scarf hanging properly. They also lend a touch of elegance to the scarf.
Next, I transformed my triangle shawl into a cross scarf.
While I made a cross applique’ for the picture, now that I have worked out the details and stitch count, I will give you the option in the knitting pattern to knit the cross design right away into the shawl itself. Don’t worry, either way, this is an easy triangle scarf to knit. As the increase count pattern is simple, this is also a perfect ‘bring along’ project. Yes, it’s a great knitting beginners project.
You can wear this shawl in several ways: wear it with the cross at the back of your coat; with the cross at the front; wrap it over your shoulders or around the neck; wear it over a t-shirt with a jeans jacket or cardigan over it, so that it becomes a cross top instead of a shawl.

What Embellishment’s Next?
So, moving forward: if embellishments are your ‘thing’, what kind of other shawl embellishments would you like to see/learn how to knit? Fall leaves – motives? Flower trim? Pretty edging? I’ve already designed a sugar skull knitting pattern. An ‘angel wings’ – pattern is in the works. And I will also include a plaids design, to make this Burberry-like. Also very trendy.
