This pattern is a based on a fractal, a self similar repeating pattern. In this case I was inspired by Sierpinski’s gasket which has triangles within triangles ad infinitum.  Once you sense the rhythm of the pattern you realize you may enlarge the design to as big as you wish with yarn as fine as you wish. This pattern is worked from a chart which represent ⅓ of the over all design.

See The Ladies Of Mischief blog for directions on how to create this using laceweight yarn from Sunnyside Ellen
