What are you most proud of? I really like the way this turned out with the lace edging and the versatility of the triangle-shaped design. It was a lot of fun to make.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you love working with thread, this is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. Written instructions and charts are provided to create three different sizes: 58-1/2 wide x 17-3/4 long, 70 wide x 21 long, and 81-1/2 wide x 24-1/4 long. The pattern is available for $4.00 and is written in U.S. terms.

Thank you!

how long did it take you to make this?

I think about two weeks. It's made with a connect-as-you-go hexagon motif that creates the triangle shape, with 1/2 hexagon motifs across the top to make a straight edge. The border is then added around the two angled sides.

Absolutely gorgeous - I have been looking for a light shawl for ages and this is exactly what I was looking for, but I can't find the link to the pattern.

Sorry, I was being a bit thick!! I didn't realise the title of the pattern was the link!! Have now purchased your lovely shawl pattern and am looking forward to working on it - and hopefully using it for my daughter's wedding in October.

This was the first pattern I entered on Craftsy and I didn't figure out how the links were set up right away either until Stephanie & Josh helped me out. I fell in love with this color and had a lot of fun working on this! Hope you'll enjoy it, too! Happy Crocheting!
