A Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern with so much texture – simple combination of double crochet stitches creates beautiful texture with popcorn stitches and a fun, flirty pom pom edge! A free crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home.
I have designed several crochet scarf patterns and the Misty Morning Triangle Scarf is one of my first and favorite! With just one Caron Big Cake and an interesting repeating pattern this scarf will work up quickly and easily.
Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern Details
This free pattern for a triangle scarf made from one Caron Big Cake* was my first project with this yarn. Caron Big Cakes are self-striping #4 medium worsted weight yarn with so many beautiful color combos available! I fell in love with how this yarn worked up – the self-striping really did all of the color work for me.
I have designed a couple of other patterns using Caron Big Cakes including the Cozy Fireside Cardigan and the Spring Caron Big Cake C2C Blanket for beginners. I also made a version of my Brandywine Falls Vest in Caron Big Cakes and loved it!
Just a note that yarn cake yardage can vary from cake to cake. I was able to make this pattern with just one Caron Big Cake but there are those that ran out during the pom pom edging. That row is a yarn eater and since yardage may vary you can certainly purchase an additional cake just in case or eliminate one previous dc row in order to finish out your crochet triangle scarf pattern.

I really like the stitch definition with this yarn as well so I believe it is very suited to a triangle shawl pattern as the yarn is on full display! I believe you will really enjoy this pattern as once you get the pattern down it is repetitive and goes quickly.
If you wanted to make a larger shawl out of this pattern it would be easy to do with two full cakes. Just repeat the pattern until the 2nd cake is just about depleted. Just remember, if you are planning on doing the pom pom row it is a yarn eater and plan accordingly.
Let’s talk about the pom poms — love, love, love! I planned the pom pom row to be made from the wrong side as I believe they look better from the back side. You could certainly do a different edging if you so choose but I really like how the pom poms complement the popcorn stitches and give the scarf a finished look. And I guarantee you are going to want to take this edging to other projects as well – would be perfect as a baby blanket border!
You could certainly use another weight yarn for this project. I made one another one of my favorite self-striping yarns Mandala which is a dk weight yarn. You can read all about Mandala yarn here . Since Mandala is a smaller weight yarn it ends up feeling lighter a bonus if you want something for warmer weather. To use the whole cake I just added a couple more dc rows and a filet row prior to the pom pom row and used up every bit of the yarn.
