Crochet a Mesh Triangle Shawl

Crochet works great for any season but really shines in the summer. It’s simple to create breezy mesh patterns that invite those warm summer winds. The Montego Shawl celebrates summer’s potential with a simple but engaging stitch pattern finished in a playful picot border.

A triangle shawl is a perfect project to practice your newfound crochet skills. The Montego Shawl pattern uses simple stitches – like double and treble crochet – while challenging you to incorporate increased stitches and follow a repeating pattern. After completing your stitches, be sure to block your mesh triangle wrap to get the full effect of the drape.

I chose Lion Brand’s Truboo for the Montego Shawl design to take full advantage of the bamboo yarn’s drape and light sheen. This yarn can be tricky to work with, so take your time making stitches and consider switching to a metal hook over wood to prevent splitting. Add a 4mm crochet hook, a pair of scissors, a tapestry needle, and a locking stitch marker to your project bag, and you’ll be ready to make a mesh triangle wrap!

    Hi Toni, thank you so much for this beautiful pattern. I’ve just started working on it and spotted a couple of things with regard to working in the spaces in the written pattern that don’t tally with the video tutorial.

    Set up rows – in Row 4 it says to dc in each st and sp (both before the marker and afterwards) but in the video you only say to dc in each st (not sp).

    Body rows – in Row 1 you say to dc in each st and sp, and again in the video you say to only dc in the st (not the sp).

    The stitch counts work if you follow the video tutorial but not if you follow the written pattern so I’ve now just worked from the video tutorial, but thought it was worth a mention in case you wanted to check it out and re-check the written pattern.

    Thanks and hope this is helpful x
