Maia Triangular Shawl
Design by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter.
This simple crochet triangle shawl pattern is easily modified for different seasons. The long, isosceles triangle shape makes it easy to wrap around the shoulders and the lace edging adds a touch of elegance. This pattern was originally published in the April, 2014 issue of I Like Crochet.
