Hi all! My first post on Craftster for years (I used to be on here but forgot my username  Roll Eyes )

May I present the super easy and very quick to make Cookies and Cream triangle shawl


100% acrylic DK, 5.5mm hook

And my fave fave fave fringed triangle scarf (takes less than 1 ball of 100g yarn, bought for 1.30 at my local market  Grin)

100% acrylic, 5mm hook



This is approximation of a pattern, just ask if it makes no sense!

Ch 6, join. Ch 3, dc in bottom of chain you've just made (to make a 'chain' v-stitch), ch 2, 3dc into ring, ch2, 3dc into ring (the space between these two will be the start of your 'point' - on the 2nd row you need to put 2 shells into this ch1 space with ch2 between them), ch 1 and v stitch into chain.

This is how you continue: make your 'chain' v-stitch to start your new row, ch 1 between every v-stitch and shell you make, do 3 dcs into every space (these are your shells), when you get to the point do 2 shells with 2 ch between and end your row with a v-stitch. It's a bit like a granny square but only worked on one side.

Keep going until you think it's big enough, then weave in your ends and add your tassles.

I hope that makes sense!

I like the first shawl very much.  Good job on both, actually.  I'm new here too.  So far, so good.   Happy crocheting!!

So cool that it takes only 1 ball of yarn! I am making a shawl for my boyfriends stepmom and I think this sounds perfect. Thanks for sharing Smiley

That is very pretty.  I love the colors.   Definantly cookies and cream like.   Grin

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
