This shawl pattern came about after I saw a fabulous simple shawl, made by another crochet fanatic. I'm not usually into shawls (although I can feel that changing) but I loved the simplicity of this particular one.
Now I don't mind paying for patterns... but in this particular instance I was NOT paying $7... I mean to say... IT'S JUST A TRIANGLE!!!!
I won't be telling you how much yarn you will need... or what size hook to use. I can tell you that I used my crazy yarn and a 6.0mm hook for my shawl. When I worked up the shawl for my daughter, I dropped down to a 5.0mm hook, which I think I prefer. But this is YOUR shawl... use whatever YOU like.

you are starting at the centre top of the shawl, and will be working back and forth in rows, turning your work as you go
start with an adjustable ring
row 1 - ch3, 2dc, ch2 (this forms the 'point') 3dc... tighten your ring... ch3 and turn
row 2 - 2dc into the first space between the dcs of the previous row, continue to dc into each space until you reach the 'point' of the shawl... 2dc, ch2, 2dc... then continue to dc into each space until you reach the end, working 3dc into the final space... ch3 and turn
repeat row 2 until you are happy with the size of your triangle! easy
since this is a free pattern, it has not been tested... if you find any errors, please let me know
there are progress shots below... I haven't put any captions on them, but they should help you to visualise the pattern
