I spotted the most beautiful ball of yarn at my local Michaels Craft Store a few weeks ago. I discovered that Caron Big Cakes has added a few new colors to their line-up and this one, Summer Berry Tart, really caught my eye! And with just one ball I created a triangle shawl! I used the Moss Stitch (SC + Chain 1) which is such a simple beautiful stitch. Unlike a traditional SC where you can see a defined front and back of the stitch, the moss stitch allows for perfect little “v’s” on both sides which makes your project completely reversible. Plus the self-striping nature of Caron Big Cakes lends itself so well to this stitch and project!
The pattern is a repetition. I will walk you through the first few rows and then you just continue using the same increase. You can make this shawl as big as you want! Or you can keep the triangle small and use it for a granny square project. This is basically how it works: you will always make a SC in the first and last SC stitch (these are your increases) then you will make a SC + chain 1 in all the chain 1 spaces. When you get to the top point of the triangle you make a SC + chain 2 + SC. I’ve created a video and then have a written pattern below!

Fasten off and weave in ends – no border needed!
Note: I was able to get 75 rows from my one ball, you can choose to make more or less rows!
Add 3 tassels for the perfect finishing touch! I will admit that I dove into a second ball of this yarn to make my tassels, but if you only have one skein you will need to leave off a few rows of your shawl to make the tassels.
If you haven’t used the Clover Tassel Maker, you will need to get your hands on one! It makes the perfect tassels every time! You wrap the yarn around the middle (height and size of your tassel is adjustable) and once you have wrapped your yarn around about 30 times (for thick tassels – less if you want them thinner) you tie off in the middle and cut both ends. Fold over and tie yarn for the neck of your tassel. You can purchase the Tassel Maker directly from the Clover USA website or you can get it on Amazon HERE (affiliate).
My shawl (using one ball) is a size small. I actually would probably use at least half of a second ball to make it larger if I were to do another one. And honestly I couldn’t resist buying this yarn in another colorway to make a second shawl! Such a fun easy project and I love the look!

My husband and I are in Hawaii celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary! I made a second Moss Stitch Shawl using Caron Simply Soft yarn in the most perfect colors to match a new maxi dress. This just shows that you can use this design with any worsted weight yarn and colors of your choosing! I fastened off and added in the new yarn at the ends of the rows so I did have some ends to weave in.
The colors I used are White (10 rows), Bone (3 rows), Heather Gray (2 rows), and Orange (2 rows), and repeated that color sequence 4 times. Of course I had to add the tassels!
