Shawls have become one of my favorite items to design. Rectangle ones are the easiest to write out, once you have the stitch pattern figured out it's just repeating the same pattern. Triangle ones are more work. It's harder to get stitches to work out since each row is an increase row, and you have to write out each row until the shawl is finished. Still like to make them... just takes longer lol
For October Breast Cancer Awareness I decided to create a rectangle shawl. When people are crocheting a gift for someone who is going through a difficult time, it can be easier to make something that is pretty, but where you don't have to concentrate quite as much.
The yarn I used is my favorite for shawls. It's labelled as worsted weight, but to me it's really dk weight yarn. It's really nice and soft and creates a beautiful project.
