http://www.crochetville.org/ for a Triangle Stroller Blankie by Lubba_my_kiddos and thought it would make a great pattern for a Prayer Shawl/Lapghan for people who are wheelchair-bound. So I jumped right in and this is the results. There is no pattern, I just rounded off one of the corners from Lubba My Kiddos pattern and increased to "4 dc groups" instead of 3 dc groups to keep the shawl flat. It was quick, easy and fun. I used leftover yarn/stash.
Picture #2 shows the rounded corner. I used dc into hdc's working to keep it centered. Came out so well.
Picture #3 is using the lapghan as a shawl. I elongated the alternate two ends from the rounded ends by putting in a shell of 5 dc, ch 3, 5 dc toward the last 5 rows to make it long enough to work as a shawl.
