Hello my blog friends,
10001 Triangle shawl
Today just a short post as I will be visiting my family in Germany.
There are so many great crochet patterns out there, sometimes it is difficult to choose. The other day I came across this lovely shawl via pinterest and followed the link back to Ravelry here.
You will find that the pattern is free to download from the MyPicot.com website :http://www.mypicot.com/10001.html
If you are confused - you need to click on this on their page (not here): Please use this link to download pattern.
There is a lovely photo tutorial to go along with it, and the shawl is shown in a single colour and with contrasting colours.
Since I easily get excited by beautiful patterns, I thought I would try to make a little swatch to see if I liked it and if it was difficult to do.
It is definitely not difficult, there is always one row of chains and V-stitches, alternated by a row of shells.
It makes for an incredible regular looking pattern with a beautiful geometry to it!
PS: you could also convert this triangle into a square....
As you can see, I used a simple variegated cotton yarn which I had to hand. So the colour runs in irregular ways. I think it would look great in alternating colours (the downside would be the ends to be sewn up later!).
I think this version looks great: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/fanalaine/10001-triangle-shawl-4
I'm surprised that this shawl has not been made more often so far. I have already added it to my favourites....
Have you found a pattern recently that you like and want to share (with links please)?
