The Triangle Shawl

IMG_5196

I just loved every moment of this pattern – found here.  

I decided to use Paton’s Embrace (no affiliation) because it is just so soft and no surprise there being 90% merino and 10% silk.  Of course you’ll see the pattern calls for a 2.5mm hook but I decided to explode that and used a 4mm hook instead and my oh my how it reveals the pattern!

I made it for my mother in law this Chrissy just gone and she loves it.  So much so that I have decided that I am jealous and that I want one in blue. Now. 

Did you make anything for loved ones this Christmas?

What was it? Can I have the pattern? Err…I mean to say if it’s no trouble of course and it was a freebie (laughs nervously, attempting to hide pattern crazed nature…) then you know I would love to take a peak – in fact – why not share your finished gifts from last Christmas over at The Crafty Poppet on Facebook? That would be so cool I can’t wait to see your projects!

Don’t you just love the patterns on the Pierrot site though? I mean seriously if you haven’t been there just drop everything right now and snag yourself a freebie (or totally pig out and download them all like I did in a more than predatory like manner).

    1. Oh thank you Marion! Yes I did block it, but the openness of the lace is more largely due to the 4mm hook instead of 2.5mm – which I prefer very much so. Having said that it would be nice to have a Winter version in a 2.5mm… ANYWAY when I block things, especially like this I do not use pins or needles – just soap and water and let it dry flat in the shade. How about you? Have you hooked this project? I’d love to see it..

  1. So gorgeous. I’m rather partial to a shawl, (they are just darn handy!) and I haven’t had a crafty project for a gazillion years. The last shawl I made took 18months…interest rose and fell like the tides, but I got there in the end.
    Anyway, beautiful shawl indeed!

    1. Oh why thank you! If only I could claim the pattern as my own…but I did decide to explode the lace. I am JUST like you! I actually made this for my mother in laws birthday and was about 3 weeks late, never got around to giving it to her and didn’t weave in the ends til about 2 days before Christmas! Ha!
