Knit sideways from point to point, a mix of textured stitches forms a reversible, elongated triangle. Working at a relaxed gauge allows the ribbed motifs to lie flat when blocked as for lace.
Multiple yarn weights are given; choose the weight you prefer. The pattern is easily modified and includes guidelines on using up every last bit of your yarn, by way of continuing with the increasing section until you’ve used half of your total yarn, then decreasing away for the remaining half.
Worsted weight: Approx. 470 yds. Shown in Beaverslide Dry Goods Merino/Mohair 90/10, 241 yds/113g; 2 skeins
Sport weight: Approx. 290 yds. Shown in Catherine Lowe Merino 5, color “bronze”, 320 yds/100g; 1 skein
Fingering weight: Approx. 440 yds; Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga!, 450 yds/113g; 1 skein
Worsted: 13 stitches and 26 rows = 4” in moss stitch, relaxed after blocking
Sport: 22 stitches and 32 rows = 4” in moss stitch, relaxed after blocking
Fingering: 24 stitches and 36 rows = 4” in moss stitch, relaxed after blocking
(note: gauge is not crucial, but will affect finished size/yardage required)
One 32” circular needle or pair of straight needles in size needed to obtain gauge
Suggested Size: Worsted: US 9 (5.5 mm); sport: US 6 (4 mm); fingering: US 5 (3.75 mm)

Blunt tapestry needle, T-pins, blocking wires (optional, but recommended for neat edges)
Pattern is charted only.
I had the pleasure of working with these fine test knitters:
Thank you again for your careful work and help in providing multiple weights for this design!
