I've crocheted yet ANOTHER granny triangle shawl out of Noro Kureyon (worsted weight) yarn. Crocheting with worsted weight yarn, using a size "J" hook is super fast! My co-worker, Courtney is the tall shawl model!
Once again, I used Doris Chan's border from her "All Shawl" for the border. You can find Doris' pattern on Ravelry for free.

Granny Triangle Shawl

Along the top edge of the shawl I crocheted a reverse single crochet stitch, commonly known as the Crab Stitch. I think it gives the piece a nicely finished edge.
I now have plenty of gift shawls on hand for the upcoming holidays as well as for a few birthdays.

Yesterday at our workplace holiday gift fair I sold out all of my baby sweaters. My co-worker, Amy purchased a little "Bruin Baby" cardigan for her little boy, Jack. The cardi fits Jack perfectly!

What a Cutie Pie!

You just have a way with colors, your shawls are very distinctive. The baby sweater is so cute on the little guy.

It looks like you knit that sweater just to go with that baby's eyes. Perfectly adorable.
And you know I love those shawls. It is the details of the edges that do it. Those Noro greens just kill me.

Ellen, I'm loving the shawls. You have magic fingers to whip them up so fast. Linda from MD

I don't know how you knit and crochet so much so fast- and everything looks fantastic. That baby sweater is adorable and the baby seems so happy wearing it.

I love that little sweater. IT would make the perfect baby shower gift that I am attending on Sunday...oh well! I will not get to post VPF since I will be at my daughters...but will be checking in on Saturday with some great photos of Holiday for Her event that we are taking part in Friday night. Have a great weekend!

WOW. That baby!! In that sweater!!! What Gale said - it fits him perfectly (just enough room to grow through the winter) and the colors!! And of course, the shawl is gorgeous. I really am impressed.

I love all your Noro triangle granny shawls. Maybe you've already answered this but can you do it again for us - how many skeins of the Noro worsted do you you use to make the shawl with Doris Chan's All Shawl border? BTW, a triangle granny shawl with fringe in white Red Heart was my very first crochet project in the 60's!!

Hi Marsha,

For the Noro Kureyon worsted weight shawls, I used almost 4 skeins of yarn. That includes the border!

For the Noro SOCK YARN shawls, I use 2 skeins.
