Granny Triangle Shawl: A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hi! It’s Rapunzel again. As a reminder, I’m doing guest posts for Cogaroo while she’s away – I’m happy to be back and sharing another project with you.

I’m especially excited about this one because it was a very time-consuming project…and I really like how it turned out.

Look what I made!

Look what I made!

Yes, I made a granny triangle shawl! Cogaroo let me use this fancy skein of yarn from her stash. Purple is my favorite color (which you probably guessed), and I loved all the shades of purple in the yarn.

Please excuse the dead grass.

Please excuse the dead grass in the picture above. Also, this yarn is very difficult to photograph – the color is darker than that in real life. But it’s so warm and cozy. (You might think it’s weird to be crocheting a shawl in summer, but the air conditioning is on indoors and it gets pretty cold.)

Cogaroo helped me take these pictures before she left, but here’s a selfie I took:

In this picture I rolled up the shawl and tied it around my neck, kind of like a bandanna.

If you’re interested in making a granny shawl, there are tons of patterns floating about the blogoverse. This pattern looks to be what I did. I used an “I” hook and some unlabeled bulky weight yarn – it felt kind of wooly.

Another picture, just because! I’m wearing it now as I type. πŸ™‚

Well, I’m running a little shorter on time today, so I think I’ll end this post here. I’m really enjoying this whole blogging business. Maybe I can convince Cogaroo to make me a blog! πŸ˜‰

Hope you’re all having a wonderful day,
