Shawl with triangles : part 1 !!!

…. At the end of August, I told you how proud I was about the translation of this Danish crochet pattern, to start a shawl made with solid triangles (here)….


…. there have been tips, just a couple of showing off (here and here) and a translation in English from the original pattern …


…. after that, nothing more !!!!
But….

….. Few days ago, I completed the 49 triangles needed to shape my shawl!!!!!
…. just imagine the joy !!!!!


I have used 6 different colours to crochet my triangles, using a 3,5mm hook…


For each colour I had 8 triangles, but the pattern was calling for 49, so I decided to lay on the floor my existing triangles, arranging them in the way I liked, then I choose (see the yarn ball in the above pic!) which colour could have the honour for an extra triangle!!!


Luckily, since the beginning of this project, I decided to crochet each triangle with only one colour, so when it was time to trim in the ends, they were not a huge amount : just two for every single triangle!!


Before collecting the triangles from the floor, I pinned on them numbers, to help me better to follow the right sequence to sew later…





Now, that all is trimmed and numbered, I've just started to sew them together….


…. with the help of some colourful yarn and a 4mm hook….
I'm just crocheting some slip stitches, that create some lovely ridges….



…. very soon, the rest of this project!!!!

  12. Pretty as always.

    I like the different colours you use to sew them together. That's an idea I've never ever thought of. Should keep it in mind!

    Your little picture that came along on blogloving look a bit like mine of yesterday's post (also triangles!)
