Don’t forget to add this CAL to Ravelry queue

First I did blocking the shawl. There are few different methods for blocking crochet pieces. Steam blocking, wet blocking, dry blocking, etc.

I did wet blocking. 
I found these helpful links about blocking crochet/knitting pieces. 

  • I found this link and it has very detailed advice, helpful tips and how to block your shawl step by step. How to block a knitted or crocheted shawl by expression fiber arts.
  • How to Block from Annie’s is another great tutorial as well. If you want to know more about blocking you should read this too.

So I started. I soaked my shawl in warm water about 20-30 minutes. After removing the water by squeezing gently and gently and again gently (you should do it a few times) I laid the shawl on the bed and pinned two sides of the corner first, then kept pinning all ch-9 sp pointers.Part 5: Spring and Summer Triangle Shawl (CAL) 2015

It was a sunny day so my shawl dried in a few hours. Quick and simple.

Adding fringe

This was one of my favorite parts. Adding fringes to the shawl was fun and I was excited to see my finished shawl at last.

How to add fringe?. Click here to see the tutorial Fringe How-to by Just Be Happy Life. 
You will need a few more yards of additional yarns to make these fringes. I made 4” inches long fringes in white color and wrapped 3 times. So each fringe has 6 strands and added them in each ch-9 pointers.

Okay… Now it’s time to see the final result!
