The pattern for symmetrical triangle Seaside Shawl is here at last!
This summer, as much as many of us stayed home and indoors, we found time to spend a few days by the beach. There is nothing like hanging out together as a family, just kids and us, soaking up some sunshine and exploring seaside hiking trails.
The gorgeous blues of the water and the skies, the white foam of the crushing waves and fresh breeze have always inspired what I do and this time was no different. Being by seaside is amazing and I wanted to create another crochet pattern to capture that feeling.
I have to admit – up to this point I have never designed a triangle shawl before. I know… I’ve been thinking of creating one for a while now and I decided that this was the perfect reason to make one. I had another, asymmetrical shawl in the works, but it didn’t turn out the way I liked and I decided that the new design would be a classic symmetrical triangle shawl.
There was no question what yarn I was using for this new Seaside Shawl design. I knew just the perfect yarn for the project!
The yarn with the colors that are the seaside perfections, Caron Cotton Cakes.
This yarn is a cotton blend which makes it soft and comfortable to work with (and to wear!) as well as easy to care for. The fiber design is great, it doesn’t split and such a pleasure to crochet with.
For the hook, I used my favorite BQueen Collection hook in size J-10, 6 mm hook. It’s a tad bigger than the hook that is recommended for this yarn, but I wanted the shawl to be airy and light, and a slightly bigger hook was perfect.
I wanted this shawl to have a classic, simple look but also have some detail that added a visual interest.
I also wanted it to be beginner-friendly, so I chose the classic and widely used stitch like DC or Double Crochet. I paired it up with SK (Skip) one + CH (Chain) one stitch to create a pretty filet detail.
In this shawl I wanted to stick to classic symmetrical triangle shawl design and give it my own spin.
The shawl is crocheted from the center out, where a small triangle is created, growing with every row. I used rows of solid DC stitches as well as the rows of SK 1, CH 1 with DC to create a filet detail that breaks up the solid fabric created by rows of DC.
I used solid and variegated yarns, creating blocks where solid yarn lets you see the stitchwork, as well as blocks of variegated yarn where it self-stripes in beautiful pattern.
The Seaside Shawl pattern is designed to be advanced beginner-friendly and easy to follow. Instructions are provided for every row and details are shown for weaving in the ends. With large print and plenty of photos, it will be a great addition to your collection.
