THE YARN


To crochet this granny square triangle shawl I used Lion Brand YarnBasic Stitch Premium

I have used this shawl for both the Simple Top Down Raglan Cardigan & the Basic Wrap Pullover.

It’s soft, great to work with & holdings up well for care & washing as well.

It comes in many beautiful colors!

A GREAT FALL CROCHET PROJECT


This crochet pattern is the perfect for fall, think colder evenings or using it to keep you cozy in front of the fire.

It uses the Ferris Wheel Granny Square pattern together wit the Flat Slip Stitch Join to create a beautiful crochet shawl. 

With projects featuring granny squares you essentially make multiple small projects first, before you assemble them. That means it it a quick achievable mini project each time you make one. 

 

TIP! You can swap the Ferris Wheel Granny Square for the Classic Granny Square on this crochet pattern!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.
