I have been working on this shawl forever… confession, it’s been done for awhile but I am a huge procrastinator about weaving in my ends haha. But, here it is all finished with its ends woven in and everything. I am so happy with how this one turned out. Sometimes projects just don’t translate well from the idea in my head to actual yarn, this was not one of those. It is even better than I imagined it could ever be.

Originally, I was going to use a skein of random dusty pink I had in my stash (red heart super saver I think?) but after the first few rows it just didn’t have the squish factor and drape I was craving. So of course, I ended up in the yarn aisle at Joann’s.

I picked Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn. I hadn’t used this yarn since I first started crocheting 6 years ago and for the life of me I can’t figure out why. It has been a joy to work with. It is a blend of 80% acrylic and 20% wool, so it has that springy-ness and that added warmth. It is super cozy and I can’t wait to work with it again.

I had a hard time naming this piece… actually I have a hard time name ALL my projects… somehow Pretty Triangle Shawl just wasn’t cutting it haha. I went back and forth between a few different names but I finally ended on What You Love.

I have this coffee mug that I keep my crochet hooks in that says “Do more of what makes you happy” and one day as I was grabbing my hook out of it, it came to me: The What You Love Shawl. It has been a good reminder to me and I hope it is to you too. Do what you love, make what you love and always be true to who you are.

I have been wearing this thing all week and it is so cozy, I just know you’re going to love it.

You may purchase and Ad-Free PDF version of this pattern on Etsy or Ravelry.

Intro

The What You Love Shawl is crocheted from the center out in a triangle shape that expands as you add more rows. It uses a mix of stitches to create a cozy and stylish accessory you will be proud to wear everywhere. Drape it around your shoulders for warmth or wrap it around your neck as a trendy triangle scarf, you decide. Pick a few colors you love and get started on this fun project today.

Notes

-This shawl is worked from the center out starting with a magic circle.

-You can change colors at the end of the rows throughout however you see fit. This is how I did it:

CA= Natural Heather          CB= Mushroom           CC= Rose Heather

Rows 1-8: CA Row 19-20: CA Row 35: CC
Rows 9-14: CB Row 21-26: CC Row 36-37: CA
Row 15: CA Row 27-31: CB Row 38-42: CC
Row 16: CC Row 31-32: CA Row 43-46: CB
Row 17: CA Row 33: CB Row 47-48: CA
Row 18: CC Row 34: CA

-Turning chains at the beginning of each row always count as a stitch.

-Work your last stitches of each row in the top of the turning chain,

-I have included how many stitches each row count will increase by in the { } at the end of the each rows instructions. Do not include the ch 2 at the point of the triangle in your count.

-Odd rows are the “right side”

    Hi Heather I really love this pattern. Would it work as a blanket or throw rug? I was just wondering about the number of chains and if that would work on all the stitches if crocheted straight up. Sorry I know it’s an unusual question.

  2. Cloudy Seymour says:
