Splendid Triangle Shawl Reviewed by Janet Claassen on 2015-03-07 *****
When I got to the end of this pattern, I followed the suggestion of Martha Steele and did the increase in F/B of every stitch across the row. Then I knit 2 more rows and bound off. It made a bit of a ruffle, but not too much. I loved her suggestion as a crochet finish would have been difficult for me (or I would have had to find a friend). Worked on #13 circular and Homespun, it was a bit smaller on me than the photo with the pattern. I'd like to make it in Heartland (another variation), but I am concerned at how small it might come out if worked on the #8s suggested in the pattern. But, overall, it is a beautiful pattern, and I will make it again!

This is easy and doesn't take a lot of yarn and turns out beautifully. Made 4 for myself and another 3 or 4 I gave as gifts. Every time I wear one I get lots of compliments. My very favorite shawl pattern!

Love how this turned out! Wearing it right now at work. Perfect for Spring & so easy even I could do it {after I figured out it was worked top to bottom instead of bottoms up. My error, not the fault of the pattern}. Can't wait to do it again in another color. Might fill my closet with these.

I just finished this shawl for the first time. I found it easy to make and so very pretty. I used Homespun Parfait, for a summery colour. I will make many more of these shawls as gifts for all my family now!

This pattern is beautiful,quick and easy. I am currently making my 5th prayer shawl and it looks great in any color Homespun plus it uses less than 2 skeins. I like using the size 13 circular needle the best. I made one in a size 10 needle, but it was very small. The crochet scallop edge is easy and beautiful also. I plan to make many more for our church prayer shawl ministry. Thanks so much for this great pattern, I love it.

Great pattern which uses less than 2 skeins of Homespun. Knits up very fast and the crochet border is very easy. Used Homespun in nouveau. Will be giving away as a prayer shawl. Plan to make many more of these.

i made this in an alpaca/silk blend. The pattern is easy and forgiving. the crocheted edge is easy and i added several additional rows on each edge to give it a very lacy and feminine look. i love this pattern and am making another!

Great pattern! I used homespun. It is very soft and lofty. Not heavy at all. If I make it again, I might do SSK in place of K2tog, just because I think it is easier. Less "fighting" with the stitches.
If scalloped edge isn't to your taste, try increasing along the bottom (knit into F&B of every stitch) then knit a few rows before binding off. This should create a ruffled, soft edge. I might try that next time. Fabulous pattern. Thanks, Lionbrand! (Other websites charge for patterns that you can't even preview first, so I appreciate Lionbrand being generous!)

This is my favorite shawl to knit. It is stunning and I love the edging at the end with no binding off and no seaming. The beauty of it--looks very intricate, but is extremely easy. You can't go wrong with this one.

Splendid Triangle Shawl Reviewed by Dr. Ricardo on 2011-08-08 ****
Very nice pattern, and very easy to follow. The bind off was tricky for a person who does not crochet, but it was not difficult to figure out. Nice big shawl, my mom is going to like it... good project to stretch yourself as a knitter with yarn overs.
