DESIGN PROCESS AND YARN CHOICE FOR CROCHET TRIANGLE SHAWL

Do you like destash sales on Instagram? I must admit I do like them. The main reason being that you can come across some real bargains and gems. In fact, that’s where the yarn for my crochet triangle shawl came from!

Undoubtedly this is one of those designs that I didn’t choose the yarn for… In this case the yarn has decided what it wanted to become! And who am I to deny that?

I used The Fibre Co. Cumbria fingering yarn that I have bought in a destash sale. And it is not hard to see why I fell in love with this yarn.

I just love the rich rusty colour in particular. The colourway is named Nutkin.

When I looked up the word Nutkin online, it came back as The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin. For that reason, I instantly thought what a fitting name for this colourway.

The tale was written by Beatrix Potter who the crochet triangle shawl is named after.

It is a fingering weight yarn at 300m per 100g skein and I used 2 skeins for this shawl. I was playing around with the idea of adding tassels to each point of the triangle.

If you are looking for yarn substitutes I’d recommend using 100% wool in fingering weight as this yarn consists of wool and mohair mix.

  3. Beautifully done. Thank you, thank you, thank you for counting ch3 as a 1st dc, I can’t stand it when some designers leave it as is, uncounted, superfluous, an additional eyesore, and it winds up ruining the symmetry (at least for me).
