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.
