Triangle shawl


This is my first attempt on crocheting a triangle shawl. I picked up couple of variegated yarn balls from the thrift store for $1.99 few months ago. The colours looked rich and the texture soft, so I thought a scarf would be nice.




I looked for pattern and found one (left hand) on you tube; this drop shawl pattern

The pattern is easy to follow, but I found that the variegated colours really do not show the pattern, and probably why it was given away.


Pattern required to complete 50 rows but the yarn ran-out in about 20 rows, so I found other similar colours to match from my yarn stack complete the project.




It is a long way to winter .............I hope.
