Mixing it Up

I’ve been having a lot of fun making some of my “Playing with Triangles Shawls”. So far I’ve finished two and am currently working on a third.

1st PWT

The first one I finished I used Lion Brand’s “Vanna’s Choice” 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn with a size J/6mm hook.

1st PWT back

It took almost all of 7 balls of yarn as I wanted the shawl to be very large.

2nd PWT

The second one I used Newton’s Yarn Country “Four Seasons” 100% acrylic fingering weight yarn with a size G/4mm hook. I added a carry-along thread (Kreinik “Twist”) in silver for a few rows and the border for some sparkle.

2nd PWT back

I used approximately 1,472 yards to make this shawl since I wanted a large shawl again. My finished shawl is 74 inches across the top edge and 32 inches long at the center point.

3rd PWT attempt

My third one is my WIP and I’m working it more of a shawlette size. I have 3 balls of Red Heart Boutique “Treasure” 70% acrylic/30% wool and am crocheting with a size J/6mm hook. I love the way this color changing yarn creates stripes in the shawlette.

You can find the pattern for this shawl in my blog post “Playing with Triangles” and the link to my video on YouTube is here.
