Granny Squares & Shapes
This soft, pretty shawl in a delightful lacy motif will work with any style of outfit, from evening dress to jeans. Each round is in a different colour and each motif is a different combination, giving a subtle and delicate effect.

Finished size
41in (104cm) at widest point

Tension
Each motif measures approximately 5in (12.5cm). Use a larger or smaller hook if necessary to obtain correct tension.

Pattern notes
Use a mixture of three different colours (B–D) for each motif, plus the joining colour (A).

    Finishing
    Use the join as you go method (see below) on the 4th dc of each loop of Round 5, joining two loops to two loops on every side 
of hexagon. Join the motifs together in the pattern shown below to form a triangular shawl.

    Granny’s tip
    You could arrange the motifs differently to make a long wrap.

    Step 3

    Join as you go
    This is a simple method of passing the hook through the matching space or stitch of a second square while crocheting the last round. Sometimes you can ‘join as you go’ using every stitch instead of using just the matched spaces to join squares/hexagons together. You can use this method for joining circles, but great care and only a few joining stitches are needed to prevent distortion of the circle.

    Complete the first square. Work a second square up to the last round. You will use the final row to join the two squares. Join the yarn in the corner of the second square. Work the starting chain stitches and two tr sts. Ch 1, sl st to the corresponding chain-one space in the corner of the first square, ch 1. Return to the second square. 3 tr sts to complete corner.
