Make a lovely Mother's Day gift with this Triangle Shawl crochet pattern. The shawl turned out lovely but my photographs don't do justice to it. When I first made it, the shawl turned out small and wouldn't wrap around my shoulder well. I made another 10 rows and stitched them together, but it still wasn't big enough. I added another 9 rows and luckily ended up with the ideal size. Third time's a charm, isn't it? I am generally impatient with big items but this one worked up effortlessly. After the first row, there isn't much counting required. It is a versatile design that can be worn in many different ways. Wrap it around your shoulder, around your neck or even around your head. The shawl is bigger than you see in the first picture as part of it has been tucked into the dresser.

Tassels And Finishing
Weave in any tails left. For tassels, cut 10 strands of 9 ½ inches length. Fold at the middle of the strands and pull through the scarf to get a loop, grab all the strands and pull through the loop. Tighten the knot and trim as needed. I attached the first tassel through the middle of the shell at the vertex of the triangle. I skipped first 4 rows and attached the second tassel to the 5th Row. Starting from this second tassel, skip two rows and attach the tassel to the third row.
