Crochet Love Triangle Shawl
A few weeks ago I went out to the new Mary Maxim yarn shop that opened just down the street from me here in London, Ontario. I grabbed myself a ball of Prism Sparkle yarn and had the idea that I wanted to make a scarf of shawl of some sort. I decided I would start to work on something after I finished a few WIP's (work in progress) I've got on the go and set the yarn aside.
I recently saw that Mikey from The Crochet Crowd will be attending the grand opening of the Mary Maxim on January 31st, 2015. I decided it was time I get to work with this yarn that I had. I started with a heart. I had the idea that I wanted to make a shawl with the heart but no idea how. I figured since there was only 2 weeks before the grand opening maybe it would be best if I worked up a scarf attached to the heart so that I would be able to have something finished in time for the grand opening.
I got to work right away on my scarf when it hit my like a ton of bricks. I had an idea of how I could work my heart into a triangle shawl. I had some angora supreme yarn from my shop that I decided to test out my idea. I hook'ed up something that I could work with and frogged that scarf pattern so fast as this Mary Maxim prism sparkle yarn was meant for something better! I was hook'ing up my Crochet Triangle Love Shawl with my Mary Maxim Prism Sparkle yarn. I worked up 10 hearts my first row just to be sure I would not run out of yarn but found after I was done that I would have had enough for 11 hearts on my first row.
I have a feeling that this pattern will cause people some difficulties because you really need to have a good understanding of right and wrong sides of work as this project can get really twisted up if you don't. I have the written pattern and a video tutorial, I hope this helps to make your own Crochet Love Triangle Shawl.

Yarn: Mary Maxim Prism Sparkle
Hook: US I9/5.50mm
Size: 11 hearts = Approximately 34 inches across the top
Supplies: Yarn needle to sew in ends.
- dc-cl (dc cluster): *yo, insert hook in next dc, pull up a loop, yo, draw through 2 loops on hook, rep from * once, yo, draw through last 3 loops on hook.
- joining dc - row 3’s dc on the right side of the heart (left side for lefties) Photo below.
As shown above, the 1st row of hearts. Untwist the chains between hearts, lay the first heart right side up and the remaining hearts laying right side down.
Gauge: with prism sparkle yarn each heart is approximately 2” tall by 3” wide.
- Ice Yarns, Angora Supreme & Angora Active (www.dearestdebiyarns.com) #2 fine yarn and a US G6/4.00mm hook, gauge turned out 2” tall by 2.5” wide. With this yarn you could start with probably 20 hearts the first row for 1 ball of yarn.
- Using Red Heart Unforgettable yarn? I recommend using a US J10.5/6.50mm hook. Gauge turned out 2” tall by 2.5” wide, I'm guessing about 10-12 hearts for your first row with one ball of yarn.
