Crochet lace triangle shawl inspiration
It’s weird, I never planned on being a crochet designer, or a crocheter for that matter. However, working through patterns, or flicking through one of the many facebook groups I belong to, it can be very easy to get lost in the idea of how you can ‘tweak a pattern’ either with your own colours, or changing a border. For me at least designing is the scary extension of that.
The Two M’s Shawl is a crochet lace triangle shawl pattern inspired by, and named for, my two son’s, Marcell and Myles. I didn’t try to think of a ‘better’ name for this crochet shawl pattern, as they were the inspiration behind it using their names seemed appropriate. Just sadly I couldn’t think of a suitable mash-up of the two!
Already a daily crocheter, at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak in the UK, I struggled at first to manage my moods as I felt trapped at home. Although i’m a home body, I don’t like being told what to do and those first few days and weeks were a struggle for me.
During the second week and following an ‘I’m bored, what can I do’, my oldest, Marcell, challenged me to make the shawl I had been talking about doing for a few weeks. “O.K then, you lot choose the yarn” and after a very quick look in the pouffe where I store my yarn cakes, two were selected and off I went.
Accidentally, it is actually a perfect blend of their personalities, both are quite easy to please characters but they need discipline or structure.
The Two M’s Shawl is a light, lacy shawl pattern, with a textured spine that creates a centre or focal line that draws the eye.

To make both my sample shawls I used Yarn Art Flowers Cakes. These are a great and more cost effective version of the popular Scheepjes Whirl or Twirls Deluxe Cakes that I use more regularly now. The characteristics of these cakes are largely the same, making them perfect for making a crochet lace triangle shawl.
Two M’s lace triangle shawl info & tips
This beginner shawl pattern uses double crochets to create all the open work and textured stitches. While a gauge is included in the crochet lace pattern pdf, I am not a stickler for gauge and prefer to just the feel of the fabric as I am working. I’m a fairly tight crocheter, but as long as there is a nice drape to your fabric then I say use whatever hook you like!
Skill level: Beginner, easy
