This is one of those suprise designs that wasn’t on my radar until the pattern was practically already written. I had a student come in one day wanting to make a granny square shawl and on my way out the door after class, I picked up a skein of yarn from a local indie dyer to make one myself because we more or less wrote the pattern in class! I ordered a coordinating set of minis two days later to add some extra fun to the party and the rest is history!

Worked in a mitered square manner, this triangular variation on the granny square works up quickly and almost effortlessly. You could easily add a second or third skein for a larger piece or you could simply keep adding stripes with the minis!

STITCHES & TECHNIQUES:

  • Double Crochet (granny square)
  • Single Crochet (linen stitch)
  • Extended Single Crochet (instructions in pattern)
  • Color Changes (stripes)

GAUGE:

Before blocking, within the body of the shawl, 33 sts and 17 rows of granny square stitches = approximately 4 inches. I aggressively wet blocked the long edge of the shawl to get it nice and straight so finished measurements were 42.5 by 17 inches.

  • Flockin’ Sock XTRA by What the Flock Hand Dyed (100g, 464 yds) in Marsha Mellow Goes to a Rave (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon) or similar Fingering (1) weight yarn plus coordinating minis
  • C/2.75mm & B/2.25mm Crochet Hooks
  • Stitch Marker(s)
