From crochet.about.com - Triangle Shawl Connected Hearts Charted Design

Pattern Created by Sandi Marshall

These photos show how the shawl looks without any edging added.
To see a photo of the front of the shawl, with an edging added,
see http://crochet.about.com/od/hearts/ss/cnhearts_6.htm
Free pattern for that edging can be printed from
http://crochet.about.com/library/nshawledging.htm

Printing: If only the ad at the top of the page prints, try this: before choosing the Print command, click on the pattern portion of the page (tells your printer what part of the page you want to print), then choose Print. Use Print Preview (click on File, then Print Preview at the top of your Internet browser) if you want to see ahead of time what will print.

The written instructions to go along with the chart are on this page. The free CHART can be viewed and printed from http://crochet.about.com/library/n030107cht.htm
To make this shawl, you will need both the chart and the written instructions that are on this page. (I placed them on separate pages due to the size of the chart.)

A note about the beginning of the rows: Starting with row 2, there is a decrease at the beginning of each row by doing a slip stitch in the first 3 stitches after you turn. In most patterns, one or more chains are made as a turning chain but in this pattern, you get a nicer look on the edges by turning the shawl around to start the next row, without making any turning chain (then proceed with the slip stitches, as instructed below).

Working this chart in 3-dc mesh filet crochet -
After you have crocheted Row 1:

Begin each row with: turn, sl st in ea of first 3 dc, chain 3 for the first stitch (counts as the first dc of the row).
End each row with: stop when 2 dc are left, leaving last 2 dc of the row unworked.
On chart, white square = ch 1, skip next stitch, dc in next stitch (makes on open mesh, which is a hole in the crocheted piece).
On chart, black square = dc in next dc (or in next chain-1 space, whichever happens to be next), dc in next dc (this makes a solid mesh, which is a filled in area on the crocheted piece).

This is my original design, my variation of my Connected Hearts Filet Crochet Square design, which I had created from my own imagination.
On the chart, the squares below the copyright notice are open mesh squares. If others want the pattern, please give the pattern url so they may come print it out for themselves. If you show on the Internet your own photo of an item that you make from my design, please include a link to this pattern for others to access the pattern for themselves. I appreciate it.

Pattern Directions For This Chart In Filet Crochet In A 3-DC Mesh
Connected Hearts is an original design by Sandi Marshall, copyright 2007 by Sandi Marshall, licensed to About.com, Inc. See terms of use below the pattern directions. Please keep the copyright statement with the pattern directions when you print out or save the pattern.

Abbreviations: ch = chain, chs = chains, dc = double crochet, ea = each, sp = space
Materials: Caron Simply Soft worsted weight yarn - about 8 oz., color Bone used in the example (this yarn is a bit lighter in thickness than some worsted weight yarns). Size G hook
Finished Size: When made with the materials listed above, before an edging is added, piece is 50 inches across the top row and 23 inches long (measured from the top to the point of the triangle). Shawls do not have to be an exact finished size so it will generally be fine if yours varies somewhat from these measurements.

Directions for the first few rows to get you started: (This shawl is worked upside down, starting with what will be the top of the shawl. The chart is upside down because it's easier to decrease on each row in filet crochet than it is to increase on each row in filet crochet.)
Starting Chain (for a 3-dc mesh): chain 202.
