Bless Your Heart Granny Triangle Shawl Pattern

Bless Your Heart Shawl
Free Pattern: Bless Your Heart Granny Triangle Shawl

Creating a Valentine’s Day themed crochet hat for my daughter was easy. Kids love bold shapes and colors, and chunky crochet hats look so adorable on little heads! Once I had the idea, Nessa’s Chunky Cabled Heart Hat was finished within a few hours.

Designing something for me is a different story! I feel most comfortable with classic, understated designs that have one bold element to them. If I use a bold pattern, I pair it with a muted color. If I use bright colors (like this shawl!) I want a subtler design.

When I saw this classic Granny Triangle Shawl , I knew I was on the right track. But I wanted just a little bit extra, so I added hearts! The heart designs are subtle enough that the shawl doesn’t scream “Valentine’s,” but knowing they’re hidden in there adds to the charm.

The best part? The bulk of the shawl is just simple granny stitching, so it works up almost on autopilot! That makes this the perfect project for unwinding after a long day of chasing kids and critters.

Materials:

  • 1 skein Caron Cakes yarn (approx. 383 yds Worsted Weight (4) yarn)
  • K 6.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn needle for finishing
  • Scissors

This project would be absolutely lovely in a solid color to make the hearts “pop” more. My go to yarn choice is Red Heart Soft! In fact, I may update soon with pictures of a solid color done in Red Heart Soft yarn from my stash.
