Time to reveal the “Iron Shirt” triangle shawl. The pattern is going to be released pretty soon but I couldn’t wait to show you the result of my summer projects.
The triangle is based on the c2c technique. I made a little photo tutorial which you can find here.
I simply replaced some of the c2c squares in the middle with Popcorn stitches on the frontside and chains on the backside which makes the “Iron Shirt” less solid but adds a lot of structure.
I decided to make a photo tutorial for the popcorn/chain variation too which will be added to the pattern. I am sure that this makes this easy pattern crochetable even for absolute beginners.
The triangle comes in 2 sizes. The little one uses only one cake of Scheepjes Whirl. The bigger one has a larger c2c part on both sides and the additional Scheepjes Whirlette makes this version approximately 20cm wider.
I wanted to get the most out of the yarn I used and so I added as much c2c rows as possible in the end. That gives the pattern a larger c2c part in the end, compared to the sides but that’s nothing you will notice when the triangle is worn.
The triangle will probably lean a little to one side in the making. Nothing some proper blocking can’t fix. After the blocking, the “Iron Shirt” will be “almost” symmetrical sideways.
Get your Scheepjes yarn at your local yarn shop: Scheepjes Dealers or order it at Wool Warehouse
Stay tuned. The “Iron Shirt” triangle shawl pattern will be released pretty soon…
Looking forward to this shawl. Love the mixture of textures.
