The “Iron Shirt” triangle shawl. Free Pattern plus photo tutorial inside.

Finally the pattern is ready. I added a little photo tutorial again so that really everyone is able to master this shawl.

As I said before is the “Iron Shirt” triangle made in a Scheepjes Whirl. The bigger version adds a Scheepjes Whirlette.

You can find your local Scheepjes Dealers or order your Scheepjes yarn at Wool Warehouse.

You can find both versions of the pattern for free here on the blog. If you want to support my work and have the pattern as a ready-to-print PDF on RAVELRY HERE. Even if you do not want to buy the pattern it would make me very happy if you would click on the Ravelry link and give it a like there.

Thank you very much @sunshineyalex for testing the pattern and creating a wonderful version in SCHEEPJES Woolly Whirl Kiwi Drizzle.

Pattern Notes

  • Read the whole pattern before you start.
  • I crochet tight so you might check your gauge and might go down a hook size or get a bigger shawl which means you might need more yarn.
  • The pattern is crocheted bottom-up.
  • The pattern is based on the c2c technique.
  • I wanted to get the most out of the yarn I used and so I added as much c2c rows as possible in the end. That gives the pattern a larger c2c part in the end, compared to the sides but that’s nothing you will notice when the triangle is worn. If you do not have enough yarn to crochet as many repeats in the end as I did it will not affect the pattern either.

  1. Hello, can i ask you a question please?
    The scarf “Iron Shrt” is very beautiful. I want to make the large version but with the Scheepjes WHIRLIGIG (= also 1000 m like the Whirl) with the WHIRLIGIGETTE (this one has only 215 m instead of the Whirlette with its 455 m). Did you use the full ball of Whirlette? Would I arrive with 1 ball of Wrirligigette or should I order 2 of them?
    Thank you very much for your opinion. Also thank you for all the beautiful patterns you provide. Best regards. Gerarda.

    1. It’s hard to tell as I didn’t crochet it with the whirligig. I would go with 2 balls. You can always just go in the end until the yarn ends.

  2. Thank you for this beautiful pattern. I am translating this in Dutch, but now I have a question. You write the following:
    Row 84 to row 104 rep row 21 times, increase the rep in the middle part with one repeat every row.

    But wich row must I reapeat? 83? 82? I hope you will answer me soon because I want to start ;-).
    Thanks in advance, Heleen
