This version of the half granny square triangle scarf uses alternating Double Crochet and Extended Bobble Stitch rows to create a more 3 dimensional texture. The result is a warm, cozy shawl with eye catching depth. Finishing off with some chunky tassels makes it a great statement piece for any fall or winter outfit!

How to crochet the Extended Bobble Stitch
YO and insert the hook into the next instructed stitch or chain space. YO and pull through the stitch or chain space. YO and pull through 2 loops. YO again and pull through only 1 loop (this should leave 2 loops on the hook). *YO and insert hook into the same stitch/chain space. YO and pull through the stitch/chain space. YO and pull through 2 loops. YO again and pull through only 1 loop* (this will leave 3 loops on the hook). Repeat from * to * 3 more times, each time adding another loop remaining on the hook. There should now be 6 loops on the hook. YO and pull through all 6 loops. Ch 1 to finish off the stitch.
Row 1: Ch 4. 2 DC in the first chain. Ch 2. 3 DC in the same first chain.
Row 2: Ch 3. Turn. In the same stitch, complete an Extended Bobble Stitch as follows (this will be slightly different than the directions above for the EBO, as it is the first stitch of the row and has to incorporate the chain 3. All other EBOs in the row will follow the directions located before Row 1 directions above): *YO and insert hook into the same stitch. YO and pull through the stitch. YO and pull through 2 loops. YO again and pull through only 1 loop* (this will leave 2 loops on the hook). Repeat from * to * 3 more times, each time adding another loop remaining on the hook. There should now be 5 loops on the hook. YO and pull through all 5 loops. Ch 1 to finish off the ebo. Ch 1. Ebo (directions above row 1 instructions) in the Ch 2 space. Ch 2. Ebo in the same Ch 2 space. Ch 1. Ebo into the last stitch of the row. Sl St into the last dc of the ebo that you just completed.
Row 3: Ch 3. Turn. 2 DC in the same stitch. Ch 1. 3 DC in the next Ch 1 space. Ch 1. 3 DC in the Ch 2 space. Ch 2. 3 DC in the same Ch 2 space. Ch 1. 3 DC in the next Ch 1 space. Ch 1. 3 DC in the last chain of the first ebo of the previous row.
Remaining rows: Repeat rows 2 and 3, putting 3 DC or 1 ebo in each Ch1 space around until the size you prefer is achieved. Following the instructions for rows 2 and 3 will automatically increase the size of the project by adding the additional stitch into the first and last stitch of each row. Be sure to continue to make 2 DC or ebo stitches in the chain 2 space at the “point” of the shawl, with a Ch 2 in between them each time you go through the row (as opposed to the Ch 1 between all the other stitches of the row). This is what creates the “point” shape. It can be helpful to mark the “point” with a safety pin or stitch marker so you don’t lose track of it. My finished shawl was a total of 37 rows. For a more finished look, be sure to end the work after completing a repetition of Row 3 (a double chain row, rather than an ebo row).
If desired, you can add tassels, fringe, or other decoration. You can find instructions for creating tassels like those pictured in this pattern HERE.
