Finishing and Blocking

You may wish to block your shawl, you can do that as follows:

Make sure all ends are woven in using a tapestry needle or method of choice.

Gently block by filling a sink or water basin with lukewarm water, and add a small amount of rinse less wool wash.

Place the items in the water and gently massage out any air bubbles.

Drain water, gently squeezing out any excess water from the item, then roll in a towel, and stomp on the towel roll to remove any more excess water.

Lay the item out on a towel to approx. finished wingspan measurements and allow to dry completely.

How Should A Triangle Shawl Fit?

A simple triangle shawl should fit in a way that allows it to drape nicely over the shoulders and back, providing both comfort and an attractive appearance.

Here are some general guidelines for how a triangle shawl should fit:

  1. Width: The width of the shawl, from one end to the other, should be sufficient to cover the width of your shoulders and upper back comfortably. It should be wide enough to wrap around your shoulders without feeling too tight or restrictive.
  2. Length: The length of the shawl, from the center point to the edges, will vary depending on personal preference and the desired style. It can range from a shorter length that falls just below the shoulders to a longer length that extends down to the mid-back or even further. Ultimately, the length should be chosen based on the look you want to achieve and how much coverage you desire.
  3. Draping: When worn, the shawl should drape smoothly and gracefully over the shoulders and back. It should not bunch up or pull tightly at any point. The fabric should have enough weight and drape to create an elegant flow without feeling overly heavy.
  4. Comfort: The shawl should feel comfortable to wear for extended periods. It should not be too tight or constricting, nor should it be so loose that it constantly slips off. It’s important to choose a size and fabric that feels pleasant against your skin and allows you to move freely.

Remember that personal preferences and body shapes can vary, so it’s essential to try on or adjust the shawl as needed to achieve the desired fit.

Some individuals prefer a snugger fit, while others like a looser, more relaxed style. 

Ultimately, the goal is to find a fit that makes you feel comfortable and confident while wearing the triangle shawl. 

What Is The Average Size Of A Crochet Triangle Shawl?    

The average size of a simple crochet triangle shawl can vary depending on personal preference, style, and intended use.

However, there are some common dimensions that can provide a starting point for creating a standard-sized triangle shawl. 

Here are a few general guidelines:

  1. Width: The width of a triangle shawl, from one end to the other, can range from approximately 50 to 75 inches (127 to 190 cm). This measurement is taken along the longest edge of the triangle.
  2. Length: The length of a triangle shawl, from the center point to the edges, can vary between 25 to 40 inches (64 to 102 cm). This measurement is taken from the center of the longest edge to the point of the triangle.

These measurements are approximate and can be adjusted to suit individual preferences. 

Some people prefer smaller, more compact shawls that provide light coverage, while others prefer larger shawls that can be draped more generously over the shoulders and back.

The size can also be influenced by the intended purpose of the shawl, whether it’s for fashion, warmth, or a combination of both.

What Is The Best Stitch For A Crochet Shawl?    

There are many different stitches that can be used to create a crochet shawl, and the best stitch will depend on various factors, including the desired look, drape, and texture of the shawl.

If you are a beginner crocheter, simple stitches are ideal, if you are more of an experienced crocheter you might want to explore more complicated stitch patterns. 

Here are a few popular stitches commonly used for crochet shawls:

  1. Single Crochet (SC): The single crochet stitch creates a dense and sturdy fabric. It’s great for shawls that require a bit more structure and warmth. However, keep in mind that single crochet stitches can take longer to work up and may not provide as much drape as other stitches.
  2. Double Crochet (DC): The double crochet stitch is a versatile and commonly used stitch for shawls. It works up faster than single crochet and creates a slightly more open and lacy fabric. It provides a good balance of drape and warmth.
  3. Half Double Crochet (HDC): The half double crochet stitch falls between the single crochet and double crochet in terms of height and density. It creates a fabric that is not as dense as single crochet but not as open as double crochet. HDC is a popular choice for shawls as it works up relatively quickly and provides a nice balance of drape and texture.
  4. Shell or Fan Stitches: Shell or fan stitches involve working multiple stitches into the same stitch or space, creating a lace shawl. They are often used in shawl patterns to add texture and visual interest. Examples include the shell stitch, V-stitch, and pineapple stitch.
  5. Filet Crochet: Filet crochet is a technique that involves working with open and filled spaces to create a lace stitch pattern. It’s commonly used for lightweight and delicate shawls with intricate designs.

These are just a few examples, and there are many other stitches and stitch combinations that can be used to create unique and beautiful crochet shawls. 

Consider the desired style, yarn weight, and the effect you want to achieve when choosing the best stitch for your project.

Additionally, experimenting with different stitches can help you discover new and exciting possibilities for your crochet shawls.
