Although experts disagree about exactly how the Caucasus mountain range is shared between Europe and Asia, most agree that Mount Elbrus is the highest mountain on the European continent, at 18,602 feet (5,670 m). the first documented ascent was in 1874. Named after a mountain in Persian mythology, it is a dormant volcano, last active about a.d. 100. this piece is a triangle with totally interchangeable motifs.

I used two skeins of yarn to make the two different versions shown.

You can use chart A, Rows 13–32 and chart B at will, and one will flow from the other any way you choose to use them. You can also make this piece as large as you like, adding extra repeats of chart A, Rows 13–32 and/or chart B, Rows 1–20, limited only by your yarn supply. Chart C will flow from either chart A or chart B. If you enjoy thinking about the triangle in a modular way, try some of the ideas in the final chapter! Directions are given for two versions of this project, but feel free to mix and match the charts.

There is an error on Chart B row 15.
The correct sequence for chart B row 15, from the end of the red repeat box going left:
P, YO, ssk, YO, ssk, k2, YO, ssk, m, ktbl, m, k2tog, YO, k2, k2tog, YO, k2tog, YO. Then you are up to the red repeat box.

I sent Interweave the correction and I will add an errata link once they post it. Sorry!
