Looking for an easy triangle shawl pattern? The Two M’s Shawl is my first ever crochet published crochet pattern. This lacy shawl pattern has open wings and a textured centre that adds intrigue to the finished shawl. Read on to find out more about the inspiration behind this crochet shawl pattern and how you can get your copy below.
Lacy shawl pattern 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 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.

Pattern info & tips
Skill level: Beginner, easy
Terms: US Crochet terms
Yarn: Scheepjes Whirl Fine Art or 400-450m of any dk weight yarn. I love gradient cakes and think this would work with most gradient or long striping yarns. The effect with a pooling or mottled yarn would be interesting and I think a solid colour would be gorgeous.
