The Triangle Box Stitch is one of those beautiful stitches that isn’t often used because it looks complicated, and it can be difficult to find a way to make it practical for everyday use. However, as a shawl, it becomes an elegant piece to dress up your wardrobe, or as an addition to linens, either in a bedroom, kitchen, or living room.
It’s also one of those stitches that you can make as simple as you like or give it an extra challenge by adding in different colors. The shawl is beautiful as a single color, but it becomes even more stunning with an ombre effect or a specific color scheme, such as a peacock tail.
The pattern comes complete with a photo tutorial so you can see how the shawl comes together one row at a time, which is especially helpful if you’re using more than one color. You’ll be using the following stitches: chain stitch (ch), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), front post single crochet (fpsc), and the shell stitch. The pattern uses both American and British terms to make it easier for international pattern viewers.
There are sixteen steps (or rows) to the pattern, which you will then repeat until you’ve reached the desired length for your shawl. The result is a beautiful, shell-edged triangle shawl that will keep you cozy in all sorts of weather. It’s a unique piece, sure to catch admiring glances from passersby wherever you go. You might even have to make a few for envious friends and family!
