Beginner Crochet Triangle Scarf

Elegant and understated, the Omar Wrap brings the cozy without being complicated. When designing this shawl, I wanted to combine my love for texture with a fun yarn to bring the vision to life. A good beginner crochet shawl should be a canvas for the yarn and creativity you bring to it. The Omar Wrap does just that, combining basic stitches with a touch of texture. It really shines when you crochet it with a fun and interesting yarn.

The Omar Wrap features an open texture through the body with the use of v-stitches broken up by rows of simple double crochet. The scarf is finished with a 2×2 ribbing, adding texture and a welcome change of pace toward the end of the project. Made with worsted weight yarn, it works up quickly and makes a perfect holiday gift.

Crochet With Color Changing Cake Yarn

To my utter delight, crochet is experiencing a renaissance right now. Not only do we see more quality crochet patterns available, but more crocheters are venturing into new yarns and colors. Color-changing cake yarns differ from skeins or hanks in that they show off a beautiful range of colors in a ready-to-use cake.

My original plan for the Omar Wrap was to make it in color blocks, customizing the shades and placement of the yarn in my shawl. After a bit more thought, I decided that I wanted the colors to place themselves in the shawl, so I picked up a couple cakes of Lion Brand’s Mandala Ombre. Mandala Ombre color-changing cakes have 5 colors that move seamlessly from one to the next.

I first tried Mandala Ombre for my free Daphne Afghan pattern and it was a pure joy to use. In the Omar Wrap, the seamless color changes marry perfectly with the subtle differences in stitches as the crochet triangle scarf continues to grow. The Omar Wrap lends itself to any kind of smooth worsted weight yarn. Choose a solid, tonal, variegated, or color-changing cake yarn for your project.

    Hi Grant! You have a couple of options. You could try a standing double crochet and see if you like it better. The other option would be to do a single crochet border over the chain 3s at the end of the pattern.

  2. AvatarGrant says

    Would it be possible to ch1 at the beginning of rows, and then double crochet in the first stitch, rather than the ch4 turning chain? I prefer the look of the ch1, but I’m not sure if it’ll work on this project

    Absoluuuuutely gorgeous!!! The video tutorial is so helpful but gotta say gurrrl you knit so fast (had to slow it down to 0.75x hahahahah…)
    But it’s so sweet of you to use a bright orange color so everything is shown very clearly. Finished this in a week and god I LOVE IT
