Easy Triangle Crochet Shawl Pattern
How often do you intentionally crochet something for yourself? I do it very rarely, and even then, someone usually claims for it , so… I loved the idea of January being Crochet4Me month! I think we should make it official! .
I think it was great to practically be invited (maybe a bit pushed) to finally treat ourselves after all these busy months of making and designing for others: for our online shops, craft fairs and our loved ones… so many things for other people…. as much we all adore to crochet… we are a bit tired!
When I supposed to suggest a pattern girls would make for themselves, my first thought was a triangle shawl! And a rather simple one! Because, that was the one thing I’ve been meaning to make for quite some time, for myself.
It had to be something beautiful, textured of course, wearable and cozy but still easy to make! A project, not only for the experienced crocheters, but for you, who are just starting and learning the stitches, too, giving you a chance to gain even more confidence! So, this was the obvious choice.
Besides, of course, when you’re making something for yourself, it usually comes last, after everything else is already done.
So, finally, I just picked up my hook, my beautiful Red Heart Super Saver yarn that had been laying around since last spring and got this shawl out of my head into the world! It took me just a couple of days to make it! And I waited for so long! Can you believe it?
We all often forget, myself included, how important it is to indulge ourselves from time to time, treat ourselves with the things we really love, whether it’s a piece of clothing, a good book, or a short trip.
It’s so important to show yourself that you matter by doing something just for yourself.
I understand that this may sound self-centered to a lot of people, but honestly, that’s not the way I see it. We already do so much for others! For our kids and husbands, our parents and relatives, our friends, and even for people we have never met! And that’s great! But, even to take care of others we have to take care of ourselves, right? If we feel good, about ourselves and in general, satisfied, happy, positive… that is the energy we will send out.
So, please, take care of yourselves! Have your special moments (for me, one of those is my coffee ritual), respect yourself, and show yourself some love, understanding, and care! Give yourself a compliment, celebrate your triumphs, no matter how small they are! Ask yourself: How are you? Just like you ask other people! The happier you are, the better place the world is! Even if it’s just a bit!
Before I get too deep into the philosophy… That is how My Leandra Shawl was created. Its name means cheeky, brave woman, with the strength of a lioness! Very appropriate, don’t you think? It was made for me, but fits you perfectly!
I think a triangle shawl in general is a great project to make whether you have mastered just the basics of crochet or you have thousands of yards of yarn in your hands!
